The influential midfielder left United in January when he moved to White Hart Lane for a nominal fee.
He started 17 Premiership games, but Jacques Santini has since been appointed Spurs coach and has already signed two new central midfielders in the shape of Sean Davis and Pedro Mendes.
However, Warnock has now stated that he has spoken with Brown and he is happy to remain at Spurs.
"Michael is not coming back in the short term as people are saying, in fact I know that even some of our directors have heard that story," Warnock told United's official website.
"Maybe in the future he would do because he enjoyed himself here, but he did well at Spurs, likes it there, and is hoping to impress his new manager along with everyone else.
"No-one knows how team-rebuilding will go at White Hart Lane but I spoke to Michael recently and think that he would want to see how things go at least until Christmas before any re-consideration of his future."
In other news, United have confirmed the signings of Stephen and Keith Quinn - who join brother Alan at Bramall Lane.
Alan Quinn arrived earlier this summer from city rivals Wednesday - but now he is joined by two of his siblings.
Stephen, 18, comes in from St Patrick's Athletic, while his younger brother Keith - 16 - has arrived straight from school.
The trio could have been four, if their other brother Gerry had not been released by The Blades last season.
"We have always had a strong belief of developing a family club, but we never expected anything like this," Blades chief executive Terry Robinson explained.
"To have three brothers from the same family all at the club is quite special. It is a rarity in football nowadays.
"Alan has been an established professional for a number of years and we have high hopes his younger brothers can follow in his boots. Stephen and Keith have already shown at the Academy what good prospects they are."
