EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says they have no interest in trading star receiver Percy Harvin.

Spielman spoke Wednesday afternoon a few hours after word spread that Harvin had requested a trade. Harvin lashed out Tuesday, saying he was unhappy with several issues on the team, but did not specify what was bothering him.

Harvin has two years left on his rookie contract. He was at the Vikings‘ mandatory minicamp practice Wednesday morning but did not speak to reporters.

Spielman says he has spoken with Harvin’s agent and considers the receiver a cornerstone of the rebuilding Vikings. Spielman also declined to cite the specific issues bothering Harvin, saying the team will keep those conversations “in house.”
