Paul Lambert has said he has no interest in allowing Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given to go out on loan.
Given, 36, has not featured for Villa in the Premier League since August after losing his place to Brad Guzan.
It has subsequently been speculated that the Irishman, who still has three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, could be loaned to Hull City.
However, manager Lambert has said: "Has there been any interest in Given? I haven't a clue. Honestly, I've not had that conversation and he hasn't said. I'm just happy to have two quality goalkeepers here.
"Am I tempted to send Given on loan? No, I wasn't tempted. You need the two of them to push each other. The fact Brad has got Shay breathing down his neck, I'm sure is driving him on."
