Leeds United are not willing to sanction a sale for Liverpool-linked winger Raphinha, according to a report.
The former Rennes man has established himself as one of Marcelo Bielsa's key men since moving to Elland Road last summer, chipping in with five goals and five assists in 21 Premier League appearances.
Raphinha's displays have reportedly caught the eye of Premier League champions Liverpool, with the future of current Anfield star Mohamed Salah up in the air amid links with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
However, The Mirror reports that Leeds are in no position to let Raphinha leave, and the 24-year-old is enjoying life at Elland Road following his bright start in the Premier League.
The report adds that Leeds intend to keep hold of the Brazilian for years to come, and crucially, Raphinha's contract with the Whites does not include a release clause.
Raphinha penned a four-year deal with Leeds when he arrived last summer, so he still has just under three-and-a-half years to go on his existing contract.
