Who is Danny Cowley?
Danny Cowley, 40, has been in charge of Lincoln City for the past three seasons.
He works alongside his brother, Nicky, as part of the famed ‘Cowley brothers’ team.
The Cowleys became a household name when they took the then non-league side to the FA Cup quarter-finals in their first season in charge.
In recent days, the Daily Mail claimed that the Cowleys had rejected an approach from Huddersfield, amid claims that they could join Sheffield Wednesday
Was that report wildly inaccurate?
