Simon Davey has rubbished reports claiming midfielder Brian Howard has asked to leave Barnsley.
Howard, who has scored six goals in 10 Championship appearances this season, was rumoured to want to quit The Tykes.
However, both manager and player have categorically denied that the 24-year-old is looking to leave Oakwell.
"Brian has not - in any way - requested a transfer from Barnsley Football Club," Davey told the club's official website.
Howard added: "I signed a two-year contract in the summer and I am going nowhere. My future is here at Barnsley.
"You cannot pay any attention to what you read in the papers."
