John Hughes has told Alan Gow he needs to stay with Falkirk until the end of the season.
The highly-rated forward bagged the winner for Falkirk on Saturday as they defeated Dunfermline 1-0.
In the last week Hughes has turned down offers from Wolves and Rangers for the 24-year-old.
With a CIS Cup semi-final coming up later this month, Hughes insists that Gow would be better off staying at Falkirk.
"We're in no hurry to do business," Hughes said.
"We have a semi-final to play and we're trying to stay in that top six - and we're not yet safe in the Premier League.
"If he plays his part in getting us to a final and keeping us in the top six then it's worth its weight in gold.
"There were two or three English Premiership clubs here watching him and if I was Alan Gow, I would stay at Falkirk and produce the goods.
"I think he's going to get his international recognition - even if he decides to leave at the end of the season, instead of being a £500,000 player, I think he will be a £2 million player.
"Then he can go and negotiate a contract on the back of that."
