Burton chairman Ben Robinson admits Albion Player of the Year Adam Legzdins is attracting interest from other clubs.
Reports over the weekend linked the 24-year-old goalkeeper with npower Championship neighbours Derby.
Robinson has met with Legzdins' agent and is expecting further offers for the player - but he wants negotiations to be kept private until they are resolved.
"When I read the story on Saturday, it (being made public) came as a bit of surprise," Robinson told the Burton Mail.
"The situation with the goalkeeper is such that we've had a number of clubs showing interest in him.
"At the present time, discussions taking place are in strict confidence and we need to see what is ultimately resolved."
Burton boss Paul Peschisolido said at the weekend: "When a massive club like Derby come calling for one of your players, it is difficult not to let them go if they are interested.
"But we are running a business, we have a value for Adam and until that valuation is met, he remains our player.
"He has a year left to run on his contract and he is not someone we want to lose. There have been a few other snippets of interest in Adam but nothing as concrete as Derby's."
