Britain's FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce said he was "totally surprised" at the statement the Qatar World Cup was to be moved - and confirmed the decision had to be taken by the executive committee.
He told Press Association Sport: "I was totally surprised this morning when I heard what Jerome has said.
"As I understand it all the stakeholders will have discussions and report back to the executive committee of FIFA and no final decision will be made on when the 2022 World Cup would be played until December 2014 or March 2015.
"As far as I am concerned that remains the situation and there has been nothing said to me to make that any different."
Boyce, from Northern Ireland, said Valcke "may have been stating his personal opinion".
He also said there had been a general assumption that the 2022 World Cup could not be played in the summer due to the heat. That view has previously been expressed by UEFA's 54 member countries and FIFA president Sepp Blatter but no decision on alternative dates has been taken.
"There is an expectation but there has been no decision," said Boyce.
