Burnley have rejected an offer from Fulham for young striker Kyle Lafferty.
Lafferty, who has previously been wanted by Wolves, has been linked with a reunion with his former Northern Ireland coach Lawrie Sanchez.
The Fulham boss has already brought in several of his old international charges and is keen to make Lafferty the next addition.
But Burnley have shunned the bid for the 20-year-old, with manager Steve Cotterill determined to keep the forward at Turf Moor.
"I had a conversation last week to say that the offer Fulham had made for Kyle wasn't acceptable, but it was made and it's still not acceptable," Cotterill told the club's official website.
"We don't want to sell Kyle come what may, but there would obviously come a time if it ever got to a certain figure that the club would have to look at it.
"Having said that we don't want to sell him, so we turned down Fulham's offer and are not anticipating another one."
Lafferty scored four goals in 35 Championship appearances last season and is under contract until 2010.
