FOREST GREEN boss Mark Cooper has poured cold water on talk of top scorer Christian Doidge making a rumoured £1million switch to Cardiff City.

Media reports suggested the 17-goal Welshmen was on the radar of Neil Warnock's Championship outfit, with the Bluebirds prepared to table a bid, but Cooper insists Doidge is staying put and is set to forge a partnership with Reuben Reid, who joined Rovers from Exeter City this afternoon.

“We’ve brought Reuben in to partner Christian, not to replace him, that’s for certain," Cooper told the club website.

Meanwhile, WalesOnline have reported Doidge is not on the club's radar.

Watch Mark Cooper discuss the signing of Reuben Reid and his thoughts on Christian Doidge.
