Falkirk boss Eddie May will not sell Darren Barr this summer unless he is offered 'crazy money' for the Scotland international defender.
Barr, who will be out of contract at the end of the new season, has been linked with a move away from the Bairns with both Hearts and Hibernian reported to be interested.
The 24-year-old's agent Kevin Drinkell told skysports.com on Tuesday that no bids had been received and his client was happy to stay put.
May expects to have the highly-rated Barr available for the coming campaign but fully anticipates that he will move on once his existing deal expires.
He told the Daily Record: "We won't sell Darren unless we are offered absolutely crazy money.
"It's not for us to put a figure on him - it's for someone else to put a figure on it. We are quite happy for Darren to see out his contract and so is he."
Get on with it
Barr insists he is happy to remain at the Falkirk Stadium, despite being switched from his favoured position of centre-back to right-back by his new boss.
He said: "I am all right with that, I just want to play. There is a new manager and he has new plans so we have to get on with it.
"I haven't played in that position at this level so I'll have to get used to it. I started at right-back but John Hughes turned me into a centre-back.
"I was at right-back when Eddie started and then I did the same while on loan at Forfar.
"It's weird having got into the Scotland team as a central defender but I'll just live with it."
