Wigan boss Roberto Martinez admits he does not know where Tom Cleverley's future lies.
The in-form Manchester United midfielder is on a season-long loan at the DW Stadium but speculation has intensified that Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson will recall the youngster in next month's transfer window.
While Martinez wants to keep hold of the 21-year-old - who scored in the 2-1 win over Wolves on Boxing Day - he admits anything is possible in football.
"That's the nature of the window - it allows everyone to speculate, talk about the players," Martinez told Sky Sports News.
"I know that many fans sometimes when they see other teams talking about our players they fear the worst but I think it's a sign of a player that is performing well, that is developing well and that's because we're letting them do something right.
"Our focus is on the player to make sure they carry on enjoying their football, they carry on progressing while they are at Wigan and then whatever the future brings, you can not control it.
"Sometimes you get an injury, you get things out of your hands in football and it's just all we need to do is make sure these players enjoy their football and they help the team to win football games."
Asked if he will have any money to bring players into the squad in January, Martinez replied that at present the club have got a few injuries and that is probably why they have been a little bit light in numbers.
"But the squad is really strong - I've got huge belief in this squad," he said.
"We're not in a situation like we were last season but in a football club like ours we always try to follow players that could help us, players that can bring something different and in that respect we'll carry on trying to improve the squad in every window."
Martinez added that his plans will depend on many issues, saying: "But at the moment, I'm very, very happy with the squad that we've got."
