Carlisle have confirmed they have not received any bids for Jarrad Branthwaite despite interest from Celtic and Rangers.

The defender is rated at around £1million by his club.

But, at just 17-years-old, the Englishman has only recently burst onto the scene in League Two.

Chairman for the Blues, Andrew Jenkins, has confirmed that no official offer has been made for the young centre-half.

He said: "The Branthwaite saga continues and all I can say is that we have had no concrete bids from any clubs, so most of what you read are agent-led rumours.

"It is up to the club to transfer players in or out, not agents."

Branthwaite was not part of the Carlisle squad who lost 3-0 to Plymouth Argyle earlier today.
