“They’re not true, we’ve had no contact from either of those clubs regarding Declan and we wouldn’t want any anyway,” Moyes told Amazon Prime after his side’s 1-0 victory over Burnley.

“He’s doing great for us, he’s a big leader now, he’s taken a lot of the weight off Mark Noble.

“He’s turning out to be a really good player but also a really good boy and good around the club.”
