Ipswich have not received any firm bids for teenage striker Connor Wickham, according to manager Paul Jewell.[LNB] Liverpool and Sunderland are among a list of clubs in recent weeks to have been linked with the 18-year-old, who is currently away with Stuart Pearce's England Under-21 squad at the European Championships in Denmark.[LNB]Jewell told the club's official website: "Everyone seems to be talking about Connor, but there's been no bid for him.[LNB]"We've had enquiries, but enquiries don't mean anything. I could ring up Barcelona and enquire about Lionel Messi, but it doesn't mean I'll get him.[LNB]"Connor is happy here and as far as we're concerned he'll be with us for next season. The good thing is that we don't have to sell anyone."[LNB]Wickham made his first-team debut for Ipswich as a 16-year-old against Doncaster in 2009.[LNB]
