Middlesbrough have told clubs interested in Stewart Downing he will not be leaving the Riverside Stadium.
Boro rejected a Spurs bid for Stewart Downing last year
The 22-year-old England winger has long been linked to Tottenham and reports at the weekend suggested Everton were also keen to sign him.
"I'm not surprised clubs are interested but that is as far as it goes," boss Gareth Southgate told the club website.
"Stewart is definitely not for sale, so other clubs would be wasting their time even considering making an offer."
He added: "Stewart is such a good player and is now an established player in the England squad.
"The idea that we would want to sell the likes of Stewart is way off-target.
"We are looking to play an attractive brand of winning football next season - and Stewart will be a major part in that."
Middlesbrough have already lost striker Mark Viduka this summer.
The Australian turned down a new contract and signed for Newcastle instead.
