I'm leaving, but I don't want them to know!

I'm looking for a new job, but my current employer doesn't know it. What's a good line to put in my cover letter to prospective employers that basically says "My employer doesn't know I'm leaving - please don't contact them," while not sounding sketchy or rude?

I know that most employers know not to contact the current employer until they've been given the go-ahead, but my current employer is particularly vindictive, and will probably fire me if it finds out I'm looking. So I'm just looking for a line that will make it extra clear that they shouldn't contact my current employer.
Or is this rude and unnecessary?
