Derby County boss Nigel Clough has warned Premier League duo Manchester City and Liverpool that their young star Will Hughes will come at a price.
The youngster, who has also been linked to Arsenal, looks set to be given a Premier League opportunity in the near future, after impressing for the Rams.
However, Clough has dismissed suggestions that he will leave the club on the cheap.
The Derby boss told reporters: "Nobody knows what we want or what the fee is going to be come the time, because we have not got a specific valuation in mind.
“Would it be more than £6m? Yes, I think it is fair to say that.
“We just think it is going to be a very, very substantial figure to tempt him away. We’ve had no bids or contact from anybody.
“If someone comes in through the front door and makes an official enquiry or bid, we will have to react to it.
“Unless there is somebody sitting there with an awful lot of money burning a hole in their pocket I cannot see it changing.”
And, for Liverpool, their star centre-back Daniel Agger says his role in the team will not change after being made Reds vice-captain.
The Danish international, who had been linked with a summer move to Spanish giants Barcelona, said he already felt responsibility at Anfield before being handed his new role.
The defender told reporters: “I always have responsibility, no matter if you’re vice-captain or not.
“You have to always be there at the front and, of course, try to help some of the young players.
“It’s a big, big thing for me.”
Liverpool travel to Aston Villa this weekend in their second league game of the season and will be hoping to make it two wins from two at Villa Park.
