BOURNEMOUTH chairman Eddie Mitchell has insisted Millwall target Scott Malone is not for sale this summer.
The left-back, 21, was linked with a £750,000-move to The Den by the national press last month.
And while NewsAtDen understands reports of a Lions bid for the Wolves academy product are wide of the mark, Mitchell has moved quickly to head off any speculation about Malone's future.
"That [Millwall's interest in Malone] is news to me," he told his club's official site.
"Scott's a very a talented player and we have no plans to sell him.
"We want to keep the majority of our first team squad and we've got to look at the players that are available, but we certainly won't be going backwards."
