The 23-year-old defensive midfielder became the subject of speculation when reports on Sunday suggested that First Division sides Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion were about to make bids of around £1 million for the Cherries skipper.
However, Phillips has since denied received an approach from any club for Fletcher nor anybody else in manager Sean O'Driscoll's squad.
"I've had no approach - official or unofficial - from any club in respect of any player so this is just newspaper talk," Phillips told The Bournemouth Echo.
Fletcher netted twice in the Play-Off final win over Lincoln City last season beforing a signing a new two-year contract with the South Coast outfit.
Meanwhile, a scan on the foot injury of defender Shaun Maher is not as serious as first thought and the Irishman will only be sidelined for between two to three weeks with the problem.
