Rennes midfielder Sylvain Marveaux has moved to deny reports linking him with a pre-contract agreement ahead of a summer move to Liverpool.
Reports in the British press on Sunday indicated that the former France U21 international was set to make a switch to Merseyside in the summer.
Yet speaking on Monday Marveaux, who is out of contract at the end of the season, denied making any comments about a move to Anfield.
Currently recovering from groin surgery, the Frenchman insisted he is looking to return to Ligue 1 action in a bid to help Rennes win the title before committing his future to any club.
"I never spoke to any English journalist and I do not understand why they wrote it," the 24-year-old told L'Equipe.
"Today I still have not decided which club I will play for next season.
"I will soon be going to Clairefontaine to continue my rehab and when I have made my choice I will announce it.
"Contrary to what some have said I hope to play again with Rennes before the end of the season.
"If all goes to plan I should be able to resume training and play in April or May. Returning with Rennes before the end of the season my goal."
