Fulham manager Chris Coleman has laughed off speculation linking Luis Boa Morte with a £2 million move to Newcastle United.

The Cottagers chief expects the Portuguese forward to sign a new contract in West London and would not even enter into discussions over a bid of that nature.

"We've not had one enquiry," Coleman said.

"I'm sure there would be a lot of clubs who want Luis because he's a quality player but, unfortunately, they won't be getting him.

"He's not for sale; not up for grabs. All we want to do is keep him at the club as he's a very good player.

"He's important to us, especially the position we are in. We want to keep him, well, extend his contract and keep him at the club.

"It makes you laugh, people talking about Boa Morte moving from this club.

"£2 million is an insult, if you like.

"I wouldn't even get drawn in on a conversation."
