Daniel Udoh is committed to AFC Telford United and will not be going anywhere else this season.

That is the word of Bucks boss Gavin Cowan, who quashed any rumours of his top marksman leaving the club for a higher division.

Udoh played a key role in the Bucks fourth straight win over Spennymoor on Saturday afternoon, and Cowan has admitted in the past his star striker has ambitions to play higher.

But for now he is staying, and the arrival of Marcus Dinanga makes no difference to Udoh's immediate future.

Cowan said: "He is not going anywhere, he is staying.

"People will look at it with Marcus Dinanga and will jump to conclusions, but we have not heard anything about Daniel.

"I can categorically say he will remain here, we are working hard to develop him because he has a dream and we have a moral responsibility to help these young lads kick on.

Dinanga came back for his second spell in Shropshire this week, following on from Brendon Daniels' move from Port Vale being made permanent.

Cowan said his squad is now where he wants it to be, and players are not coming to Telford simply for the financial gains.


He said: "We have what I wanted.

"Initially I understood the level and type of lad I wanted, and the board have supported me immensely.

"We've balanced the books with a few lads going out, but we are still not full of riches.

"But lads are not coming for the big money, they are coming because they believe in what we are doing.


"Finances are important to footballers, but here they are not at the top of their hierarchy importance here and they want to achieve something.

"We have no plans to bring anyone else in, but that is not a definite.

"But we are where we want to be."
