Rumours that Huddersfield Town were close to a deal for Simon Terodde are wide of the mark - according to VfL Bochum Sporting Director Christian Hochstatter.
In an interview in Kicker, Hochstatter has revealed there have been no bids for the striker's services, and the possibility of a contract extension with his current club remains an option.
David Wagner distanced himself from reports linking him with Town in March, but speculation has resurfaced recently.
And Hochstatter insists no official bids have been lodged - although reports in Germany suggested Stuttgart had had an offer rejected.
Terodde, who scored 25 goals in 33 2.Bundesliga appearances last term, has also been linked with Sheffield Wednesday, Derby and Brighton.
Speaking when the striker's name was first mentioned back in March, Wagner said: “I know him, but then every manager in the Championship and probably most in the Premier League know him.
“He was the top scorer in 2 Bundesliga last season and is the top scorer now.
“We have to be realistic about what kind of player we are speaking of.”
Town have already announced six summer signings, with deals for goalkeeper Joel Coleman and midfielder Ivan Paurevic confirmed on Tuesday .
However, sources have suggested a deal for Jack Payne is close and Town are expected to add another forward, a right back and a goalkeeper before the window closes.
