Gillingham boss Mark Stimson has revealed that the club have yet to receive any offers for highly-rated striker Simeon Jackson.
The Gills are desperate to hang on to the Canada international after his goals fired them to League Two promotion last season via the play-offs.
The pacey forward continues to be linked with a move away, as Premier League and Championship sides monitor his progress, but Stimson insists there has been no movement on that front.
"There was a quick phone call from one club regarding Simeon, but nothing concrete and the boy just has to continue enjoying his football and doing what he does best, which is scoring goals," the Gills chief told skysports.com.
"He is bound to generate interest because he is a quality player and I am confident that he will one day play at a higher level, but I'd prefer it if he stayed here for a bit longer because he is part of my plans for this club's future."
The Gills announced that midfielder Adam Miller had refused to have his contract cancelled earlier this week after a permanent move to Dagenham & Redbridge fell through, as they could not match his wage demands, but Stimson does not buy that explanation after the Daggers subsequently recruited from elsewhere.
He added: "Adam did reasonably well there, but whether they can afford him is debatable considering they've just brought in two midfielders, so people can look into that how they wish.
"There were obviously some finances available, but they weren't used to sign Adam Miller.
"He is back training at the club and he is available for loan should anyone come in for him."
