But then I read what he actually wrote and he didn't say it's "between us and rovers" and he didn't say "rovers are offering a long term contract". So it reads like it's a reaction to the rumours and still pretty much nothing.
I mean, we're probably "alert to the possibility" of signing hundreds of players who are "mulling over" moves.Towell (29) is mulling over a return to Ireland with his family when his contract with big spending Salford City expires at the end of this English season.
The Dubliner is on the comeback trail from injury and is expected to return to full fitness within the next fortnight.
He is in the short-term plans of manager Richie Wellens so will be with Salford for the coming months barring a sudden change of plan.
However, both Rovers and Dundalk are alert to the possibility of signing Towell on a pre-contract arrangement.
Similar to recent negotiations that saw Sean Gannon and Sean Hoare move from Dundalk to Tallaght, Rovers are in a strong position because they are willing to put a long term contract on the table.
