Sheffield United have not received any new approaches for Phil Jagielka.

Skysports.com revealed earlier this month that Sheffield United had rebuffed an offer from Everton.

Everton have since been unwilling to make a bid that would trigger Jagielka's release from his contract.

Bolton are now firm favourites to land the versatile midfielder, although Blades' football chairman Terry Robinson insists no manager has been in contact recently.

Jagielka has said he is keen to continue his career in the Premier League but Sheffield United are still hopeful of being reinstated to the top flight.

The player is understood to be reluctant to make a decision until he knows the club's fate, and the uncertainty appears to have deterred rival managers.

Everton and another unnamed club, believed to be either Wigan or Middlesbrough, are the only two teams to have talked with United's board of directors.

"We have received no new approaches recently," Robinson told The Star.

"At this stage we have received two - from clubs you already know about."
