Carlisle United’s Holdings Board have today issued the following statement:
“We are aware of the media reports of a transfer offer being made for midfielder Owen Moxon.
“We can confirm that we have received an offer and that it was turned down. The ‘leaking’ of a confidential offer, and its terms, is unwelcome and clearly designed to unsettle the player, fans and the club.
“We can confirm that Owen has one year left on his current contract and is not for sale. We see Owen Moxon as part of the future at the club.
“We had already been in talks with him and his agent about a new long-term deal with Carlisle United and had made a contract offer with that in mind prior to the bid coming in.
“We are hopeful that a new deal for an extended contract can still be reached with Owen, to keep him at Brunton Park beyond this season. We will continue to support manager Paul Simpson in getting a deal done.
“We hope this puts an end to the speculation and that we can all now focus on an exciting season ahead in League One.”
