Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for West Brom star Matt Phillips.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Inter Milan boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at The Hawthorns have said that the club will reject any advances for the West Brom winger.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Inter Milan.'
