Reading manager Brian McDermott insists there is no chance the club will sell goalkeeper Alex McCarthy to Leeds permanently.
The 22-year-old has impressed during his loan at Elland Road, a spell that has been extended by an additional month.
McCarthy is ineligible to play for Leeds this weekend as they entertain Reading in West Yorkshire so Andy Lonergan will return in goal.
It had been suggested that the Whites could bid to retain McCarthy on a permanent basis, a notion McDermott has dispelled.
When questioned if Reading could sell the keeper, he told the Chronicle: "Absolutely no chance whatsoever. It's not even worth discussing.
"Alex is playing for them on loan at the moment, but that's all. It works for both them and most importantly for Alex."
McDermott is expecting a 'great occasion' at Elland Road on Saturday with both teams in decent form.
"Both Leeds and ourselves are in good form at the moment and it should be a great occasion. Elland Road is a terrific place to play football," he continued.
"Last season we went there after winning eight games on the spin. We were going for nine victories in a row but we ended up drawing.
"I know Simon Grayson quite well and he's a very good manager and a good guy. He's doing a terrific job there and they will be close to going up again this year."
