No sale: County keen to keep Irvine

Jackson Irvine’s Scottish club Ross County is not looking to sell the in-demand Socceroos midfielder this off-season.

County manager Jim McIntyre confirmed the SPL outfit wants to hold onto Irvine after receiving a bid from newly promoted English Championship club Burton Albion last week.

Irvine, who has another year on his County contract, has also had interest from English clubs Rotherham United, Wigan, Sheffield United and Millwall.

The 23-year-old’s stocks have risen over the past 12 months, playing a key role in County’s top six finish and League Cup triumph, where he was Man of the Match in the final.

Irvine has also added three Socceroos caps to his name in the past year, following his sole appearance in 2013.

"We're not looking to sell Jackson," McIntyre told BBC Scotland.

"He's one of our best players. He's getting game time under his belt and is developing.

"When he plays the way he has, like in the League Cup final, people sit up and take note.”

The Melbourne-born talent also won the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month for March.
