Preston North End manager Darren Ferguson has dismissed reports he could bring in Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan on loan.
Ferguson currently has Matt James and Josh King on loan from his father's club and has also been linked with a move for Obertan.
The Frenchman was in attendance at Preston's 1-0 win over Portsmouth at the weekend and has yet to feature for United this term.
However, Ferguson has not even discussed the possibility of signing the 21-year-old and doubts the former Bordeaux youngster is available for loan.
"That's one we've not even spoken about," said Ferguson in the Lancashire Evening Post.
"He's in their first-team squad, there's no chance."
Meanwhile, United youngster King is unsure if he will extend his loan spell at Deepdale beyond the initial three-month agreement after scoring once in four appearances so far for Preston.
King told the club's official website: "It has been going good and I've enjoyed it. I've only been here three weeks, but I have enjoyed it.
"It's too early to say whether or not I would extend the loan I will just have to see how it goes, but I'm enjoying it at the moment so we will wait and see."
