DUNDEE United boss Craig Levein has warned Ipswich to forget about landing star midfielder Morgaro Gomis for �800,000.

Roy Keane is reportedly interested in signing Gomis, with an offer of around that size having been mooted.

But Levein insists he has yet to receive any bids for the Frenchman and hinted he would want something nearer the �1.8million Hamilton received from Wigan for James McCarthy.

"First of all, there has to be a bid from someone before we can respond to it," Levein said in the Evening Telegraph.

"There hasn't, so we can't, but one thing I'm happy to tell you is that if Hamilton can sell their best player for �1.8million, there is no way we would consider selling Gomis for under half that.

"You are talking about a player who, right at this moment, I consider to be our best midfielder in terms of consistency and level of performance.
