Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has reiterated he will only sell in-form winger Matt Phillips if a top Premier League club comes knocking with the right offer.
Phillips has been in solid form for the Seasiders after a short loan spell at Sheffield United ignited his season, scoring seven goals in all competitions since his return to Bloomfield Road in December.
Cardiff reportedly saw an offer for the winger refused earlier this week, while Bolton are thought to have made an enquiry.
But Holloway maintains the 20-year-old's future is at the Championship side unless a high-profile Premier League club come in for him with a big-money bid.
He told the Daily Star: "The future for Matt Phillips is here.
"He knows from me if the top teams come in we will let him know about it and they will pay the right money for him.
"That time has not come yet. Anybody can say they want him but he's ours."
Meanwhile, Holloway insists striker Lomana LuaLua will not be leaving Bloomfield Road until the end of the campaign.
He added: "The plan we had was I would put him back on the map for next summer and he wanted to prove to the chairman he is worth a lot more than he's getting.
"He's in the right place to shine, so why would he want to leave?"
