The Northern Ireland international was linked with a move to Moss Rose after Dale boss Steve Parkin decided to put the 20-year-old on the transfer list last week.
Speaking on the Spotland club's official website, a spokesman for The Silkmen made clear there was no truth to local reports that the Cheshire-based outfit were targeting McCourt.
"Some one saw (Macclesfield boss) Brian Horton and Steve Parkin talking at a recent Rochdale reserve game and backed with the knowledge that our manager is looking for a creative midfielder, they put two and two together and came up with eleven," the spokesman said.
