Fulham manager Mark Hughes says Fulham will not listen to any offers for Clint Dempey, despite suggestions that Liverpool are preparing to make an offer in the January transfer window.

Dempsey is reported to be a target for former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson and has also been linked with Wolfsburg, managed by former England boss Steve McClaren.

However, Hughes has no intention of selling a player who has scored six goals in all competitions for the Cottagers this season.

"I'm sure there is interest in Clint. Most good players are mentioned at some point in time leading into a window," Hughes said. "There's been no contact from any clubs for Clint or any other player.

"Nor would we encourage it because Clint's very happy here, is enjoying his football and is having an impact for us. If there any enquires about Clint, they'll be getting short shrift."
