Reports over the weekend suggested that Riordan could be set to exit Easter Road.
Mowbray insists he has had no offers for the Scotland Under-21 international and that he plans to keep him.
"No manager has ever rung me up and asked about Derek," said Mowbray. "I am assuming it is mischief-making.
"I don't know who has made those comments. It is not even up for discussion, because it is not even a question that has been asked.
"Derek is a young player who is working hard at his game.
"He has lots to improve on, as have all of our young players, but he has scored goals for us this year and he is a young talent that hopefully I can help improve."
