David Moyes has insisted that Celtic have not shown any interest in Gary Naysmith.
The Scottish international has been strongly linked with a move back North of the Border, but Moyes has denied any interest.
"You say 'further interest' but I can tell you that there has been no interest in Gary Naysmith from Celtic," he told the club's website.
"I have heard nothing from Celtic."
Naysmith will compete with fit-again Alessandro Pistone and Nuno Valente for the left back role at Goodison Park, with Phil Neville also available to step in.
