Tromso are to hold talks with Tore Reginiussen amid reports linking the defender with a switch to Fulham.
The 22-year-old's future has been the subject of speculation for some time and Blackburn were credited with an interest late last year.
Fulham tracked Reginiussen's progress during the transfer window but a move never materialised.
Reports in Norway have continued to suggest that negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing, but Tromso maintain that Reginiussen is not about to go anywhere.
"We've had this under control and all the time reasoned that Tore is a Tromso player," director Tom Bendiksen told the Norwegian press.
Reginiussen has a year left on his contract but will be free to start discussions with other clubs in the summer.
Bendiksen is keen for the highly-rated centre-back to stay at Tromso but accepts there is a risk that he could move on a free transfer.
"We need to talk to Tore and discuss what strategy we should have for his further career," Bendiksen added.
Asked if Tromso hoped to tie Reginiussen to a contract extension, Bendiksen replied: "I don't wish to comment on what we will do or not.
"We must consider this (Reginiussen leaving for free) but if a player plans to leave for free, there's not much we can do.
"It will be up to him to decide to sign a new contract and that's why it is important to sit down with him."
