Hibernian have rejected a bid from Colchester for skipper Rob Jones.
Colchester made an approach for Jones earlier on Tuesday after seeing a move for Wycombe's Mike Williamson rebuffed.
The League One club confirmed they made a six-figure bid for the former Grimsby stopper, but Hibs have moved quickly to snub their overtures.
"We received a bid, which we rejected out of hand," said a Hibs spokesman.
"We have no interest in selling our skipper."
Jones, who moved to Easter Road in the summer of 2006, is under contract at Hibs until 2010.
