Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has denied that he is interested in signing either Danny Webber or Jon Stead.
Webber is currently without a club and Stead has fallen down the pecking order at Roy Keane's Ipswich, but Warnock dismissed speculation linking him with either striker.
Warnock will be without Stern John until the end of October as he tries to recover from a dislocated elbow, but the former Sheffield United boss says neither Webber nor Stead will be making the move to Selhurst Park.
He said: "I spoke to him (Webber) last week but he rang me for advice more than anything. We want a big guy up front really.
"We can't afford Jon Stead. I don't think we will be doing anything this week but we are still on the lookout for a striker, with John out until the end of October."
