Freedman: Says no moves have been made for Palace stars
Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman says the only firm interest that has been shown in any of his players this summer is Brighton's unsuccessful bid for Owen Garvan.
Key members of manager Freedman's squad such as Darren Ambrose, Nathaniel Clyne and Wilfried Zaha have all been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park this summer.
Palace are keen to retain their star players and underlined that stance by snubbing the Seagulls' reported £250,000 offer for midfielder Garvan.
And while Freedman admits that a formal offer for any player would be considered, he insists no clubs have made contact.
"We've had no offers for our players other than Brighton coming in for Owen," Freedman told This Is Croydon.
"We've not even had any other enquiries.
"I've made it clear that I don't want to sell Owen.
"And anyway the offer made was absolutely no way near the value I'd be looking for.
"Of course every player has a price and, after what this club has been through we have to do what we think is best for the future.
"But I'm keen to keep my best players here and hopefully I'll be able to do that."
Palace have recently been linked with several players, including former captain Shaun Derry, who is now at Premier League new-boys QPR.
However, Freedman has played down such speculation, adding: "It's just not true."
