Derby County boss Billy Davies has ruled out allowing Darren Moore to leave on-loan.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a move to Leicester City, where Gary Megson is manager.
Megson and Moore worked together at West Bromwich Albion and the Leicester boss is keen to strength his back four but Davies says the centre-back will not be leaving Pride Park.
"I'm not surprised by the speculation but Darren Moore won't be going anywhere," said the Rams manager. "He is a very important player for us and I'm delighted to welcome him back from injury."
