PSV Eindhoven boss Guus Hiddink is keen to keep Lee Young-pyo, despite interest from Monaco and Tottenham.
A number of clubs have been alerted to the South Korean's possible availability with Manchester United also linked with a bid for the defender following their capture of his team-mate Park Ji-sung.
"In our opinion, we don't want him to go," Hiddink told reporters in Asia. "It is not our initiative nor my initiative to let him leave the club.
"I wanted both Park Ji-sung and Lee Young-pyo to stay.
"But sometimes you cannot stop him.
"Nothing is sure for now but no-one knows what will happen."
Some reports claim PSV would swap Lee for Marseille's Taye Taiwo but l'OM chairman Pape Diouf does not want to release the young Nigerian.
Lee's contract is due to expire in 2006 and Spurs are rumoured to have been monitoring the 28-year-old's progress for some time.
