The 25 year old is currently on the books of the Hammers, with a £2million deal having taken him to Upton Park from Bristol City in January.
"We've mentioned probably 30 people like that and I've not made contact with the club myself," he told the Yorkshire Post..
"But I'm not saying he hasn't been mentioned because there are 20 or 30 players we've asked about, talking to Premier League managers and staff.
"We've not even considered making an offer for him. We've just been asking people what the availability of that type of player is."
