Derby County have denied reports that Fulham have made a bid for their goalkeeper Lee Camp.
The highly-rated shot-stopper has been linked with a move to Craven Cottage - with the futures of both Edwin van der Sar and Mark Crossley in doubt.
Dutchman van der Sar is out of contract in the summer and is said to be attracting interest from a number of clubs, while Crossley is being strongly linked with a return to former club Middlesbrough.
Camp is seen a possible future England keeper and Premiership clubs are regular visitors to Pride Park - which has led to the Fulham speculation,
However, The Rams insist they have had no contact with Fulham.
"There has been no conversation with Fulham and no offer for Lee," said Derby's director of football Murdo Mackay.
"The reports don't surprise me because Lee has made tremendous progress in the last 12 months - illustrated by his performance against Wigan last weekend.
"The transfer window is open and there is always going to be speculation at this time of the season. But speculation is all it is."
Meanwhile, young Derby defender Lewin Nyatanga is believed to be attracting interest from arch-rivals Nottingham Forest.
The Welsh youth international is highly regarded at Pride Park and it is thought that Forest were told that Derby had no plans to let the full back leave.
