Hearts director Sergejus Fedotovas insists the Scottish Premier League club are in no hurry to sell star winger David Templeton this summer.
The 23-year-old has just one year left to run on his contract at Tynecastle, but the Jambos are thought to be holding out for a bid of around £1m.
Several English clubs are believed to be interested in Templeton, with Leeds reportedly leading the chase.
Fedotovas told the Edinburgh Evening News: "We have had interest in Templeton but for us it is most important to look after the shape of the team.
"We will evaluate that interest on the basis of what options there are to replace the player and strengthen the squad."
