Sheffield Wednesday have announced that Burnley are yet to lodge a bid for Marcus Tudgay.
Owls manager Brian Laws is desperate to keep the striker after he enjoyed an excellent 2008/9 campaign, scoring 14 goals.
Tudgay has already agreed a new three-year deal with Sheffield Wednesday and is set to sign upon his return to pre-season training.
And the Owls maintain that Burnley will find it extremely difficult to prise him away from Hillsborough if they do decide to step up their pursuit.
"Sheffield Wednesday can confirm the club has not received a formal offer from Burnley Football Club for the services of Marcus Tudgay, contrary to recent media reports," read a statement from the Yorkshire club.
"As a club, Sheffield Wednesday wants to build a competitive squad around players like Marcus Tudgay, with the aim of reaching the Premier League together.
"Further, Marcus recently agreed a new three-year contract with Sheffield Wednesday, which he is due to sign when the players return later this week, indicating his commitment to the club."
Reports over the weekend suggested that Burnley had offered £1.5million for the 26-year-old's services.
Laws added: "The figures that are being bandied about are nowhere near what we would accept in any case."
