Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew expects Yannick Bolasie to stay at the club beyond the end of the summer transfer window after setting reported suitors Tottenham Hotspur a valuation in excess of £25m ($38.8m) for the Congo international.
The Mirror claimed in June that Bolasie was "tempted" by a move to White Hart Lane after the Eagles had rebuffed enquiries from West Ham United, Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
But Pardew maintains that no club, including Tottenham, have declared an interest in signing Bolasie – who scored four goals and made 12 assists in 31 Premier League starts last term.
"I am pretty confident of keeping him," Pardew told The Evening Standard. "He is a player that isn't quite polished — you only need to see him to see that.
"But I cannot see anyone paying in excess of £25m because that's what they are going to need to get him out. So, if they want to we will talk.
"There is no long-running saga. It is just fed by the media and the fact we have done really, really well. We have had no bids for him. None. Not one phone call for Yannick Bolasie so it is actually not true at all."
Tottenham have made three signings of note during the summer transfer window, with the focus primarily on their defence as Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Tripper and Toby Alderweireld were added to improve Mauricio Pochettino's back-four.
The business conducted by Tottenham in the window has focused on streamlining their squad, with the likes of Lewis Holtby, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue and Benjamin Stambouli among the players to leave North London.
