PSV Eindhoven insist they will not be selling Manchester United target Dries Mertens during the January transfer window.

The Belgian winger has been in sensational form since his summer move to Eindhoven from Utrecht, and has scored 15 goals in 21 appearances for PSV.

His goalscoring exploits have reportedly alerted Sir Alex Ferguson, and a January transfer to Old Trafford has been mooted in the Dutch press.

PSV, however, have no intention of selling Mertens to United, although they are aware that he has been attracting attention from more high-profile clubs.

“We don’t buy a player like Mertens to sell them after six months," PSV sporting director Marcel Brands told

"Nothing is going to happen. There are a lot of rumours in the media but not one club has contacted us [about Mertens].

“There are no clubs who ring us for information about this player. There are no offers. We know that there are clubs watching our players."

United, meanwhile, are also reported to be tracking Bolton centre-back Gary Cahill as Ferguson considers bringing in cover for injured captain Nemanja Vidic.
