Paris St Germain coach Antoine Kombouare insists Stephane Sessegnon is not for sale.
Reports in France have suggested that relations between the PSG boss and his talented playmaker have soured of late.
Sessegnon is believed to have grown increasingly disillusioned with life at the capital giants after struggling to hold down a regular first-team place.
That led to him requesting to leave in the winter transfer window, believing his future would be better served elsewhere.
Kombouare is said to be disappointed with his player's actions, as he is keen to retain the core of his squad until at least the end of the season.
That remains his stance at present and he has sought to play down speculation suggesting Sessegnon, who has attracted interest from England in the past, will be allowed to leave.
"I am very happy with my squad," Kombouare said in L'Equipe.
"I said there will be no departures.
"I hope no-one wants to leave, but even if they did the answer would be no.
"I am trying to defend the best interests of the team. We need everyone because we do not have a big squad."
