Leeds United have denied reports that they are inviting an auction for their England international goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

With Premiership champions Manchester United and runners-up Arsenal both in the market for a new keeper, Robinson continues to be the subject of intense transfer speculation.

That has been fuelled by comments from Robinson himself that he is uncertain about his future at Elland Road.

In addition, there have been requests from Robinson's agent to negotiate a new contract for his client.

Nevertheless, Leeds are denying they have any intention to part with another of their prize assets and are certainly not attempting to spark a bidding war.

A club spokesman said: "That's absolute rubbish."

In any case, Leeds would be looking for a large fee for the 23-year-old from Beverley and as he has only played one difficult season in the Premiership, clubs might decide to postpone the decision until they see how he progresses next season.

Man Utd are very interested and could be ready to make a bid. Don't think Leeds could turn down 6m....

Robinson is a very good keeper and i think both clubs might go after him...Leeds wont turn down the offer as you say...

With Man U they would well push to get him as they said they want to replace bartez...

According to the papers, Arsenal are being priced out of the bidding by Man Utd, plus Wenger is not keen to bring another young keeper to the club now Seaman has left so looks like he is Man Utd bound.
