Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has rejected rumours linking Daniel Agger with a move away from Anfield in the January transfer window.
German side Wolfsburg claim they have been offered the chance by the Reds to sign the Danish international.
Agger, who was named in the Liverpool squad for Wednesday's defeat to Wolves after a lengthy lay-off, has struggled to hold down a regular place in the side under Roy Hodgson this season.
The central defender's future has been the subject of speculation for some time and Wolfsburg sporting director Dieter Hoeness's claim that Agger is being hawked around to several clubs is sure to fuel further rumours of a possible move away from Anfield next month.
However, Hodgson insists Agger has not been offered to anyone and that the defender is going nowhere.
He said: "Daniel Agger has not been 'offered' to anybody. Daniel Agger is a Liverpool player and there's a good chance he'll be in the Liverpool team on Saturday (against Bolton).
"So if ever you hear Daniel Agger is being 'offered', it's not by Liverpool Football Club - it's by unscrupulous people who are second guessing and looking at players who have not been in the team in the last couple of weeks and suggesting they might be available.
"But anytime you read that, it is untrue."
