Cardiff City manager Russell Slade says clubs interested in Adam Le Fondre will have to pay for the striker.
Slade says he has had an "honest and frank conversation" with the former Reading forward who spent the second half of 2014-15 on loan at Championship rivals Bolton.
Bluebirds' boss Slade admits "unsettled" Le Fondre, 28, is likely to leave, but only for the right price.
"Nobody's going to steal him for nothing that's for sure," said Slade.
"Adam feels he didn't really settle in Cardiff.
"We'll see what happens there but if not all our players have received their close season programs.
"He's still our player and he'll be training with us come the 25 June if nothing materialises."
Le Fondre joined the Bluebirds from Reading for an undisclosed fee in May 2014.
He made 25 league and cup appearances for Cardiff, but struggled in front of goal scoring just twice.
In January 2015 he joined Bolton on loan scoring eight goals in 16 Championship starts for the Trotters.
Slade admits Le Fondre could end up at Wanderers: "I've certainly not had any contact [from Bolton] but I know for sure that the [Le Fondre's] agent is trying to work something out between the two clubs."
