Bradford City boss Bryan Robson has admitted the cash-strapped club would have to consider any offer for Andy Gray after Sunderland were linked with the striker.
Reports suggested that Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy was weighing up a £500,000 move for the Scottish international to bolster his strikeforce.
Gray has enjoyed a fine season with Bradford despite their struggle at the wrong end of the table and his performances are believed to have caught the attention of a number of clubs.
With Bradford fighting to avoid falling into administration again, it is feared they may be forced into selling a number of top stars to balance the books.
Robson revealed to skysports.com that there have been no offers from interested clubs, but that the Yorkshire outfit would have to considering selling him if an approach was made.
"I have not seen the reports and there has been nobody in contact with me," Robson told skysports.com.
"But obviously with the position the club finds itself in, if someone was to make an offer we would have to consider it.
"He has been doing well and I would not like to sell him, but, like I said, with the club being in the situation it is, we would have to look at all offers."
McCarthy confirmed his interest in Gray, but he is not planning an imminent move.
"That was something quite a while ago," said McCarthy. "There was a suggestion at one stage of a swap with Michael Proctor and Andy, trying to freshen things up and move players around from both of us.
"He's somebody I've watched and somebody I like, but at the minute, there's nobody coming in. There's nothing happening this week."
