North Queensland Fury have denied Robbie Fowler has been the subject of an approach my managerless Coca-Cola League One side Tranmere.
Rovers parted company with manager John Barnes last week and reports over the weekend suggested the club had approached 34-year-old Fowler with a view to the former Liverpool and England striker becoming their new player-manager.
"North Queensland Fury FC is aware of a report on UK-based website People.co.uk that suggests marquee player Robbie Fowler could make the move back to Britain to play for League One club, Tranmere Rovers," read a statement issued by the A-League club. "Rovers have not approached the Fury in relation to Robbie Fowler."
Fowler has a two-year contract with the Fury and earlier this year vowed to honour that deal after being linked with Tranmere in July.
"I've got a two-year contract with North Queensland Fury FC and I'm a man of my word - I'll play it out," Fowler said at the time.
"I wouldn't want anyone to do that sort of thing (renege on a contract) to me and I certainly wouldn't do it anyone."
