Paul Lambert insists Aston Villa are not among the clubs looking to offer Michael Owen an extension to his Premier League career.
The experienced striker is currently available as a free agent following his release by Manchester United.
Owen has expressed a desire to prolong his playing days, but has made it clear that he will only consider top-flight offers.
The 32-year-old claims to have a number of options to consider and announced on Tuesday that he is 'getting closer to finding a new club'.
Speculation has suggested that Villa may be prepared to take a punt on the former England international, but Lambert claims Owen does not figure on his summer shopping list.
"No, that won't happen," he told the Birmingham Mail.
"There was no enquiry from us, I don't know where that one came from.
"That's a non-starter. He's a top player, no doubt, a really top player, but that's for another team."
Lambert has also sought to distance himself from reports claiming that Villa would be willing to discuss a loan deal for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.
He added: "There's nothing on Andy Carroll, no."
