Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies is not worried about Lewis McGugan's contract situation.
McGugan's current deal expires in the summer, meaning the midfielder is free to leave the City Ground on a free transfer.
The 24-year-old demonstrated his importance to the team again on Monday with his fifth goal in as many games, holding his nerve to score from the penalty spot deep into injury time to rescue a 1-1 draw at Burnley and extend Forest's unbeaten run under Davies to nine matches.
A handful of clubs are reportedly monitoring McGugan's situation, but Davies is not concerned about losing the player.
He told the media after the game at Turf Moor: "I have spoken to Lewis McGugan and he knows my feelings about him.
"We will remain focused on the remaining games, then we will sort out the things that need sorting in the future.
"I don't worry about losing players, they come and go. We make our intentions clear to players. When we want them to stay, we will offer them what we can financially speaking.
"If they decide to move on to pastures new, I do not lose too much sleep about it. There are far too many players out there to worry about that.
"Lewis knows my feelings, he knows my position and he knows how much he is wanted at this club."
