Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has revealed that there have been no offers for Emile Heskey.
Heskey's future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks with the striker linked with several clubs including Aston Villa, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Latics boss Steve Bruce has insisted that he will fight to keep Heskey, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
And Whelan has now claimed that Wigan have yet to receive an approach for the England international.
"Everybody knows Emile Heskey's future hangs in the balance right now ahead of the transfer window reopening," Whelan told the Manchester Evening News.
"Emile is out of contract at the end of the season, but I can confirm there have been no approaches or offers for him."
Whelan admits that Wigan will not stand in Heskey's way if he wants to secure a move away from the JJB Stadium.
He said: "If Emile eventually moves on from Wigan, we naturally have to find a quality replacement. We totally respect Emile and it all depends on what he wants to do.
"I honestly feel this could be his last career move but, obviously, we would love him to stay at Wigan.
"He is a very important player for us and a fine ambassador for the club and his country."
