Marvin Emnes is emerging as a transfer target for Premier League Swansea in what looks like being a busy final week of transfer activity at Middlesbrough.
“There have been enquiries for two years for Marvin from Swansea, ever since he went out on loan,” said Boro boss Mowbray.
“And yet Marvin has got, I think, three-and-a-half years left on his contract here.
“There is no reason for us to rush into selling Marvin Emnes.
“Let’s wait and see what the week brings.”

Swansea City are set to bank close to £6 million from the sale of Scott Sinclair to Manchester City.
Sinclair is on the brink of a move to the Etihad Stadium — which could be completed tomorrow — for a fee expected to be in the region of £6.5 million.
Swansea will not get all the cash because of a sell-on clause in the deal which brought the winger to Wales from Chelsea two years ago.
But it is thought that clause only entitles Chelsea to around 10 per cent of any profit made by Swansea on a player who cost them £1.5 million.
Defender Angel Rangel believes Swansea's summer recruits have played a major role in the club's perfect start to the season.
New signings Michu, Jonathan de Guzman and Chico have all played in the two Premier League victories.
"The signings from the gaffer have made a difference so far," Rangel said.
"They've all come from a league in Spain that they all know to keep the ball," added Rangel.
"Their strength is their quality on the ball and they're very intelligent on the pitch as well and I think this is making the difference for us.
"Michu has had a great start, scoring three goals in two games. And Chico at the back is looking very solid."
Danny Graham has insisted he will be fresher to fire more goals this season after words of advice from manager Michael Laudrup.
Graham got off the mark for the campaign when he netted the game-clinching third against West Ham, having admitted his frustration at not getting among the goals in the previous week’s five-goal rout of QPR.
“My role hasn’t really changed, but the gaffer says to me to make sure I’m in between the two centre-halves.
“When there’s a chance to close them down, close them down, but not run around so much because maybe in one sense, I worked a bit too hard last year.
“When we got into the final third I was lacking a bit of energy.
“He’s stressed that to me and if that improves me and gets me a few more goals I will be delighted.
“I managed to get 12 last year and that was tremendous. The most important thing is that the team is winning, of course, but it’s great if I can help because you always want to better yourself.”
