The Ukrainian club were reportedly impressed with the Irishman when the sides clashed in the Uefa Cup earlier this season.
Dnipro were believed to have made a move for the former Institute man, although the Easter Road outfit have confirmed an official bid has not been tabled.
"To say there was a bid for Ivan Sproule is a slight exaggeration," stated a club spokesman.
"We do receive approaches from clubs and third parties via telephone conversations and faxes which is part and parcel of the team and players doing well.
"We are not actively trying to see any player. There is no pressure on us to sell our players."
