Grant Holt's management company have rubbished recent reports claiming Crystal Palace have bid for the Norwich striker.
It was suggested that the 32-year-old was being targeted by Eagles boss Ian Holloway to fill the void left by Glenn Murray's long-term knee injury which will almost certainly rule him out of action for the upcoming Premier League season.
And with Norwich boss Chris Hughton said to be willing to offload Holt following his capture of Netherlands hitman Ricky van Wolfswinkel, it appeared that a deal could be in the pipeline.
But with a fee for Peterborough hitman Dwight Gayle agreed by Palace, the Croydon Advertiser is claiming a representative of Holt's management company has denied that a bid was made.
He said: "It's just speculation, really, Until a club, or Palace, show their cards and put down some money, we've had not contact with Palace over Grant.
"Obviously, the fact that Norwich have signed Ricky van Wolfswinkel for £8m and they want to bring one or two others in, it would probably be the right time for Grant to move on.
"We are in constant dialogue with Norwich, but there hasn't been any enquiry at all from Palace so he'll report back to pre-season training as normal next week."
