Swansea boss Roberto Martinez has informed Owain Tudur Jones that he has no intention of selling him.
The Welsh midfielder has fallen out of favour at the Liberty Stadium this season and has expressed a desire to leave the club in an effort to boost his international prospects.
This news is reported to have attracted the interest of at least two Championship clubs, with tentative enquiries made to the Swans.
Martinez made it clear that the 24-year-old is not for sale at that time and is sticking with that stance in the wake of fresh speculation surrounding Tudur Jones' future.
"Owain has been distracted too often by the Wales situation," Martinez said in the Evening Post.
"He has been called up when he wasn't playing for his club, when he was injured, and that can put some doubts in your head.
"Every time he isn't playing for Swansea he is getting concerned about his Welsh career and that is wrong.
"Nobody should be thinking that far ahead, you should be concentrating on your daily work."
Martinez understands Tudur Jones' frustrations at finding himself out of the side, but has called on him to be patient as he bides his time on the sidelines.
"There's nothing wrong with Owain expressing his feelings," said the Spaniard.
"He has had two difficult seasons with injuries and obviously he would love to see himself playing week in, week out.
"But sometimes in football it takes time to get to 100 per cent in all areas.
"Physically Owain is 110 per cent now, but sharpness, decision-making and tactical awareness will come with a little bit of time.
"Owain is a great professional, he is always a 10 in training, and he is also a special man," he added.
"He is a fantastic talent who I see playing a massive role for Swansea City."
