Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is confident Daniel Agger will be going nowhere during the winter transfer window.
Denmark coach Morten Olsen has been reported as advising Agger to consider leaving the club as a turbulent season continues at Anfield.
But Hodgson has rubbished the reports, saying the 26-year-old centre-back has no reason to leave now he is back in the starting line-up after regaining full fitness.
"His future has never been in doubt," said the Reds' boss.
"I am a close friend of Morten Olsen and I don't believe for one minute he would involve himself in the business of Liverpool Football Club.
"That story you can dismiss. If he said he would like to see Daniel playing regularly that is another matter.
"Now he is fit, perhaps he will be playing regularly, so the question does not come up."
Agger has made just four league starts this season and appeared as a substitute in Wednesday's 3-1 defeat at Blackburn.
The Danish defender has spent three months out injured this season and is contracted to Liverpool until the summer of 2014.
