Manager Frank Lampard expects last season's Championship top scorer Matej Vydra to remain at Derby County.
The 26-year-old striker scored 21 league goals in 2017-18, but has been heavily linked with a move to second-tier rivals Leeds United and West Brom.
Lampard told BBC East Midlands Today: "There is a lot of speculation but he is still our player.
"We will see, but while he performs as well as he did last year, with the level of goals, I expect him to stay."
Lampard, who was appointed in May, will not have Vydra available for his first pre-season friendly against Notts County on Saturday because of a groin injury.
"Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to train with us," Lampard added.
"But he should be integrating back with the squad next week and then I will look at him. He is a top-quality player, without a doubt, and if he is here then that's great for us."
Vydra joined Derby for a club-record fee of about £8m in August 2016.
