Stoke City say they have had an approach from Swansea City for midfielder Joe Allen.
The Swans have been told he is not for sale and Stoke consider that the end of the matter.
Joe Allen joined Stoke for £13m after the Swans’ £8m bid was rejected in June, 2016.
Manager Paul Clement has renewed Swans’ interest in the player who rose through their ranks after joining them as a teenager.
Tony Scholes, the Stoke chief executive, told BBC Radio Stoke: “Swansea did inquire, so there is truth in that. I’d rather it didn’t get reported, but these things do.
“They did inquire with us and we told them quite firmly that we were just not interested in any kind of sale.
“They [Swansea] made an enquiry, they’re a decent club, we told them we’re not interested, that should be the end of the matter.
“Joe had a great season with us last year and I’m sure he’ll have another great season with us next year.”
