Jim Jefferies has refuted claims Hearts have held talks with Aberdeen defender Zander Diamond, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Dons boss Craig Brown recently stated the Tynecastle manager had told him he was interested in speaking with the stopper.
While Jefferies admits he is interested in Diamond, he is so far undecided whether the Edinburgh club will make an offer.
"We've had no talks with Zander Diamond," confirmed Jefferies.
"I saw in some papers that we had already signed him or had discussions with him and that wasn't true.
"I told him (Brown) the agent had been in touch with me to indicate that he was out of contract.
"I said I hadn't made up my mind if I was interested or not. He'll tell you that."
Jefferies added: "I've been linked with three players this week.
"Agents phone you up and say to you this player and that player is out of contract at the end of the season.
"I say 'that's good to know, thank you very much' and then suddenly you're linked to signing them."
