Reports had suggested that The Blues were to exchange transfer listed Dele Adebola and Peter Ndlovu for the West Brom hitman.
However, Thompson dismissed the link on Wednesday, which has been followed by Wile backing his comments and admitting that he will not be leaving the Hawthorns at all.
Wile told the official West Brom website: "I can't think where this has come from. We get lots of enquiries to the club but Birmingham have never contacted, unless Trevor Francis has spoken to (manager) Gary Rowett.
"There's not a chance of us thinking about it, the phrase I use is exactly the same as the chairman yesterday - the agent's flying a kite. There's no way that we would consider letting Lee leave the club."
