The former Nottingham Forest and Celtic ace has been constantly linked with a move back to England with Fulham and Birmingham reported to be interested in him, but van Hooijdonk insists he is going nowhere.
"I'm not working to get a split between me and the club," van Hooijdonk told Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad.
"I am irritated that people believe I want to leave Feyenoord - my intention is to stay in Rotterdam.
"I will be present at the first day of training on Monday and I feel fine.
"All of the stories that I want to have a new club before this coming Monday are complete nonsense."
Feyenoord also confirmed that they expected van Hooijdonk to be at training on Monday.
In a club statement, they underlined the situations of van Hooijdonk and other members of their squad that have been linked with moves away.
On Bonaventure Kalou, Feyenoord denied that a deal with Auxerre had been struck but talks were ongoing.
However, Kalou's younger brother Saloman and Ferne Snoyl will be joining the squad for training in Austria this summer.
The club have also offered Steve Olfers and Patrick Mtiliga in exchange for RKC Waalwijk Peter van den Berg. Feyenoord are also looking to loan out Glenn Loovens, with Willem II showing an interest.
Polish goalkeeper Zbigniew Malkowski will be returning to the club to act as number three following the retirement of Carlo l'Ami.
Malkowski has been on loan at Feyenoord's feeder club Excelsior.
