Sheffield Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay insists George Hirst's departure is no certainty.
Hirst is a confirmed target for Manchester United.
Luhukay said: “This is the situation between George and the club of course.
“It's a very difficult situation and we must look in the future at what we can do.
“We'll do the best for Wednesday and the team, but we try also to help the young players to start a good career here.
“I think George is a fantastic player, but where is his future? I cannot say.
“Is it the Championship with us? Is it the Premier League?"
