Barclays has no plans for tie-up with rival banks - sources

LONDON, May 23 (Reuters) - Barclays Plc is not exploring a potential merger with other banks, two sources close to the lender told Reuters, dismissing a media report that said Barclays was considering a possible deal with rivals, including Standard Chartered.

The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that Barclays' top executives were exploring a deal with another banks and chairman John McFarlane was keen on the idea of a possible combination with StanChart.

Barclays and Standard Chartered declined to comment on the FT report.
