Hearts striker Michal Pospisil is set to ignore interest from abroad and stay at Tynecastle.
The 27-year-old held talks with Norwegian club Stabaek last month following a frustrating season in Scotland, but is now determined to fight for his place in the first team.
The Czech Republic forward's agent Viktor Kolar confirmed that only a considerable offer would tempt him away from The Jambos.
"It is probable now that Michal will stay in Edinburgh, everything looks that way," he told The Edinburgh Evening News.
"He spoke with Stabaek, but he doesn't have to talk with them again and things weren't all that serious.
"If he does leave, it will only be for a very good offer that suits both the player and Hearts.
"Otherwise, I don't expect he will move in the summer. We haven't discussed transfer fees with Hearts or anything.
"I think if there was a club who really wanted to speak about buying Michal then I would find out about a fee.
"Or the club could contact Hearts, but there hasn't been anything mentioned about a possible transfer fee yet and I don't think there will be one."
Meanwhile, Hearts transfer target Ahn Jung-hwan is expected to wait until after the World Cup before deciding on his future.
The South Korea international is looking to leave relegated Bundesliga outfit MSV Duisburg this summer, but is not prepared to make his mind up just yet.
"Ahn feels it is better for him to concentrate on the World Cup now," said agent Tom Sanders.
"There has been no further contact with Hearts since the start of the week but I am not worried about that.
"I know the interest is there and it is something we will look at again once the World Cup is out of the way.
"If Ahn does well in Germany, it may well be that even more clubs will show an interest in him."
