Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has confirmed there have been formal approaches from two clubs about David Goodwillie.
As revealed earlier, skysports.com understands that Rangers are preparing a bid of up to £2million for the in-form striker, who has scored 11 goals this season.
Thompson has now confirmed two formal approaches for the player, although there has not yet been an offer.
He told STV: "There have been two formal approaches to me from a chairman and a chief executive of two other clubs, but there's been no offers for David.
"There's been a lot of enquiries, a lot of interest shown but no offers to date so he remains a Dundee United player as far as I'm concerned.
"Obviously he's in great form and has a great future ahead of him. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks."
While United manager Peter Houston stated last week that he hoped to keep his squad together, Thompson believes every player has a price.
The chairman added: "Let's be fair, every club is a selling club. If the biggest clubs in the world like Manchester United sell Ronaldo then anybody can sell anybody.
"Every player has a price and that's just the way football is.
"We'll see in the weeks to come if we get any firm offers and that's it."
