Stoke's reported interest in Hugo Rodallega and DJ Campbell is unlikely to become substance in the current transfer window.
Sky Sports sources last weekend revealed Tony Pulis was considering a possible loan bid for QPR striker Campbell, whose future is uncertain following the appointment of Mark Hughes.
The former Blackpool star was last summer signed by former boss Neil Warnock, but he missed a large chuck of the first half of the season due to a foot injury.
Wantaway Wigan forward Rodallega, who is out of contract at the end of the campaign, has also been linked with a £4million switch to Stoke after confirming he wants a move.
But, having spent big in the summer on the likes of Peter Crouch, Cameron Jerome and Wilson Palacios, Britannia Stadium chairman Peter Coates does not anticipate any new arrivals.
He said in The Sentinel: "We are not expecting anything, unless something falls that we like the look of.
"We have a quite a large squad and feel we are well served with cover."
