Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore told David Beddows of The Advertiser that he can almost guarantee that top scorer, Adam Le Fondre will not play his last game for the Millers on Sunday at Wembley.
Despite the strong rumours that other teams have been after Alfie, Moore says that isn't the case.
'No matter what anyone thinks, we've not had a phone call about him,' Moore said. 'We've got a strong Chairman here who won't let anyone come in and penny pinch him. If we had to go to a tribunal then we'd go to a tribunal.
'It might not be what Alfie wants to hear but it has to be decent money and if it's not then he doesn't go.
'Of course, if the price is right then we won't stand in anyone's way. If someone comes in with two or three million pounds and we can bring three or four players in for that and put the rest in the pot then that's good business.
'And, in the modern game, I think two or three million is what he's worth.
'He's only scored in the lower league but he's never had the opportunity to score higher up and if I was a manager in the Premiership then I'd take a chance on a twenty-three year old like him. With the money they have up there, two million pounds is nothing.
'We have no set fee in our head and anyway, I want to convince him to stay and that's why we really need to get promoted.
'Alfie is a predator and there's not many about - which is why there's been a lot of interest in him. He has massive belief in himself but I still think there are areas in can improve in and he knows that. And, once he does improve in those areas the world is his oyster.'
