Reports have suggested that Norwich boss Nigel Worthington is keen to bring in Etuhu to aid the club's push for an immediate return to The Premiership.
Worthington ran a personal check on the Nigerian last season and is rumoured to be considering an offer.
But The Lilywhites have fielded no enquiries from their Championship rivals for Etuhu and are not encouraging bids for the midfielder.
"Every summer speculation about players comes about and within the club we get used to it," commented Preston chairman Derek Shaw.
"I've heard the rumour myself but we have certainly had no contact with anyone at Norwich City regarding Dickson.
"In fact, no other club has approached us about any of our players and we're happy for it to stay that way."
Norwich chief Worthington appears keen to strengthen his midfield in the summer as he has also been linked with Jason Jarrett.
The Wigan Athletic man is considering a three-year contract offer from the Premiership new boys but has also caught the eye of Norwich.
