MILLWALL owner John Berylson has no intention of selling his stake in the club after ex-QPR chairman Gianni Paladini was linked with a takeover at The Den.
Paladini, 68, watched the Lions' 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town last Saturday and reports this morning claim he is lining up a £16million offer.
But Berylson insisted: "I have absolutely no interest in selling Millwall to Mr Paladini, who I have never even met nor have any intention of meeting, or anyone else.
"I am as committed to this club as ever, and having just brought in Ian Holloway as our new manager I am very excited about the future.
He added: "Ollie has pledged his future to Millwall for the next two and half years and hopefully beyond. I fully intend to be with him every step of the way."
Chief executive Andy Ambler believes Berylson is "as enthusiastic as ever" about his future with the Lions following the recent appointment of manager Holloway.
A source close to Berylson confirmed that he had spoken to Paladini but that their one and only phone call was "not worth the conversation."
And CEO Ambler added: "Bringing Holloway to the club was just the next step in a long-term project. John wants to move the club as far forward as he can.
"There's no way the chairman wants to sell. He has assured me he is as enthusiastic as ever.
"People can be interested all they want – but for somebody to buy a club, there has to be a seller and John is not interested in selling."
