Leicester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says there has been no follow-up interest from Everton, who are keen to sign midfielder Andy King.
Everton manager David Moyes has identified the 22-year-old Welsh midfielder as a potential summer target. King has 15 goals this term as well as reaching double figures in the past two seasons.
There have been suggestions that, if King switched to Goodison Park, part of the deal would see on-loan Toffees striker Yakubu make a permanent move to the Walkers Stadium.
Eriksson told the Mercury that he was aware of the newspaper stories speculating on King's future.
But said there has been no contact between two clubs and that he has not spoken to King's agent.
Eriksson said: "I have read about Andy King in the newspapers.
"But I guarantee that I have heard nothing of this and the club has not been contacted because I would have known that as well.
"Andy's agent has not spoken to me either."
King said back in November when he was linked with a move to the Premier League during the January transfer window that "there was nowhere he would rather be at this moment than at Leicester."
