The Irish midfielder is rumoured to be a target for former Ipswich manager George Burley, who has recently taken charge at Palace.

Garvan only started 14 games in the Championship for Ipswich last season, but Keane says he has not received any bids for the 22-year-old.

"I think there's obviously stories about offers going in for our players, but there's been no offer for Owen Garvan," Keane told Sky Sports News.

"Managers have conversations every day about players and I've done the same, but in terms of concrete offers for Owen Garvan, it is certainly not true."

Fun and games

Keane also confirmed he has been making enquiries regarding possible additions to his squad, but is not anticipating much activity at Portman Road in the coming weeks.

He added: "Particularly in the Championship I don't think there's too much money around.

"I think there's plenty of phone calls that have gone on and I've had a few calls about some of my players, and I've made enquiries about some other players.

"It's kind of fun and games at the moment. I don't think anything will happen over the next few weeks, but I've got a decent squad as it is.

"I'm fine for numbers, but there are one or two areas I'd like to strengthen. But until I move one or two players out I don't see any players coming to Ipswich over the next week or two."
