Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said on Friday the team "has no intent" to trade wide receiver Percy Harvin, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.
There had been reports that the Vikings were actively trying to trade Harvin, who has been productive on the field but presented some off-field problems for the team, primarily regarding a confrontation with head coach Leslie Frazier.
"We have no intent of trading Percy Harvin," Spielman told reporters Friday. "Percy Harvin is under contract and we expect him, just like all of our players under contract, to be here."
When asked whether a trade could materialize if the team decides not to meet Harvin's contract demands, Spielman said, "Again, there is no intent to trade Percy Harvin. He is a very good football player. I'm not going to talk about any contractual issues because those are kept internal."
Harvin is due to make $2.9 million in 2013, the final year of his rookie contract. However, he wants a long-term extension.
