Crewe boss Steve Davis says the League One club have not received any official bids for Villa target Luke Murphy yet.
Murphy has been tracked by several Premier League clubs after a superb campaign in which he won the Cheshire club's Player of the Year award and was named in the League One team of the season.
The 23-year-old midfielder turned heads when he hit the opening goal in the Railwaymen's 2-0 Wembley triumph over Southend in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.
Paul Lambert and Celtic boss Neil Lennon both made subsequent personal checks but, according to Davis, no enquiries are forthcoming at this stage.
"We've had no enquiries but it is early yet," he told Crewe's official website. "I'm sure most managers are making calls and devising lists. They just won't have one or two on it but five or six.
"I'd expect things to happen later in June or early July. We are like any other club. Our recruitment is on-going - we are talking to agents, we've invited a couple down to speak to.
"It is still quiet but will get busier as we approach the pre-season games."
