Paddy McCarthy is hoping Nathaniel Clyne and Wilfried Zaha will see out the transfer window at Crystal Palace and aid the club's pursuit of glory.
A productive campaign for the Eagles has seen them close to within three points of the Championship play-off places and make their way into the semi-finals of the Carling Cup.
It is shaping up to be a memorable 2012 for the capital club, but they are aware that their ambitions could be severely hampered by goings on over the coming weeks.
Premier League vultures continue to circle Selhurst Park, with Clyne and Zaha attracting plenty of top-flight interest.
Eagles defender McCarthy understands why the duo are on plenty of January shopping lists, but he has urged the pair to stick with Palace and help them to end the campaign on a high.
He said: "They are fantastic individuals.
"I think they are enjoying their football, being part of the team and we love having them here.
"When you have players like that then you're always going to get the big clubs having a look at them.
"It's up to the chairman. I'm hoping, and so are the players, they'll still be here come the end of January."
