Lawrie Sanchez insists Fulham have not received any offers for Franck Queudrue and will only sell the unsettled left-back for £3million.

Queudrue’s days at Craven Cottage are numbered following his criticism of Sanchez’s long-ball tactics and the French defender is eager to move on.

Newcastle are interested in taking Queudrue to St James’ Park but the £2million bid they are believed to be preparing falls short of Sanchez’s valuation of the former Middlesbrough player.

“We’ve had no official contact from any club for Frank Queudrue at this moment at time,” he said.

“It’s well documented he’d like to move on. There will always be players who want to move on. If players want to move I won’t stand in their way.

“But he cost us £3million and we’d like our money back – he hasn’t devalued in price at all over the last year.

“If there hasn’t been a suitable bid then he’ll stay here for next season.

“There are no bargains to be had out there and we have had to pay what clubs have wanted when signing new players.

“We’re not in a position where we have to sell any players.”

Sanchez has spent £17.5million on Aaron Hughes, Steven Davis, David Healy, Diomansy Kamara, Chris Baird and Paul Konchesky already this summer, but has promised more movement at Craven Cottage before the window closes.

“Hopefully there will be one or two more new faces here before the end of the transfer window,” he said.

“We’ve had two enquiries for two of our players but they’re both still with us. Neither enquiry has matched our valuation of those players.”
