Howe has insisted Fraser is completely focused on Bournemouth's relegation battle, despite his contract due to expire in the summer.
It was suggested to Howe that Fraser could even depart the club this month, should Bournemouth receive a cut-price offer, rather than wait and lose him for nothing.
Howe said: "I've not had any discussions with Ryan towards that effect.
“He's very focused on this team and in the current position that we're in he knows the importance of his individual performances to help the team. So no problems with him."
