Interest in Crewe full-back John Brayford has tailed off of late, according to manager Gudjon Thordarson.
The 21-year-old, who arrived from Burton Albion at the start of the season, has attracted plenty of suitors following his solid debut campaign for Alex.
Derby, among others, have emerged as serious contenders for Brayford's signature with Thordarson recently insisting he would not be sold on the cheap if recently-relegated Crewe did have to part ways.
Brayford himself has admitted he would be more than happy to stay but recognised the situation could be taken out of hands.
Yet Thordarson has revealed all is currently quiet on that front, much to his delight.
The Alex boss told the club's official website: "Nothing has happened with John Brayford. Since the season ended it has gone a little bit quiet but we will see what happens.
"I'm sure there will be clubs out there assessing their options and I still expect someone to come in and make us an offer. I would be delighted if John stays with us because he is one of our best players and had a terrific season for me."
Meanwhile, John Armstrong-Holmes has denied reports that Crewe have enquired about Notts County assistant manager Dave Kevan.
And the Magpies chairman insists that any approach for Ian McParland's number two would not be welcomed as he has 'unfinished business' at the Meadow Lane club.
Crewe boss Thordarson is keen to appoint his own backroom staff following Alex's relegation to League Two, and the Icelander worked alongside Kevan at Stoke at the turn of the century.
Armstrong-Holmes told County's official website: "We have had no approach from Crewe for Dave Kevan and I would certainly expect a call if they were interested in him because he is under contract at Notts County.
"Having said that, there is no point Crewe contacting us because Dave is going nowhere. He and Ian McParland have unfinished business at Meadow Lane."
