Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws says that he would be shocked if Richard Wood decided to move to Notts County.
Wood, whose current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, has made no secret of his desire to move on from Hillsborough having turned down a renewed contract with the club.
League Two big spenders Notts County have already expressed an interest in the highly-rated centre-half, as have Championship outfits Ipswich and Coventry.
Laws, though, says he would be shocked should Woods decide to leave for Meadow Lane, even with big money on the table.
"Everybody knows that Notts County will probably be paying fairly good money that we couldn't match," the Owls boss told the Yorkshire Post.
"But is it Richard's cup of tea? I would be surprised if he even considered it."
He added: "There is a two-week opportunity where things have got to move quickly. While Notts County have made a move, we are waiting for others.
"No one has made a firm offer. At the end of the day, we have got to the stage where we might have to auction him."
