Ross McCormack has dismissed suggestions he could be sold by Fulham just months after joining the club.
The Scotsman signed from Leeds United in the summer in an £11 million move, but has scored only five Championship goals for the club so far.
McCormack has however given short shrift to the newspaper's claims, even admitting he has been joking about them with teammates.
He told WestLondonSport: "The manager has not even said anything to me about the reports, so that shows you how much truth there is in them.
"Newspaper speculation is the world we are living in. I have read it and a few of the lads have been having a bit of banter about it.
"I’m happy here. Fulham paid a nice bit of money to bring me here and I’m just looking to repay them by giving good performances."
Manager Kit Symons dismissed the claims last week, and given that McCormack has done little to inflate his price tag above the £11 million Fulham paid, and fact the club would have to accept an early loss to sell him, a sale looks like a non-starter.
