Reading have ruled out letting any of their stars leave before the transfer window closes.
England defender Nicky Shorey, along with Leroy Lita and Ivar Ingimarsson are believed tro be attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs.
West Ham and Newcastle are known to be keen on Shorey, whilst Portsmouth are being linked with Lita and Everton with Ingimarsson.
However, Royals' director of football Nick Hammond insists that the club are not planning on any pre-transfer deadline sales.
Shorey and Lita have told the club they are not going to sign new deals, but Hammond does not see that as a negative.
"Both of the players (Shorey and Lita) have given themselves breathing space. They are not prepared to commit themselves yet," Hammond said.
"Having been a player myself I can understand that. I am still very, very keen to try and move discussions forward with the pair of them and try and get them to commit to Reading Football Club.
"The harsh reality is the transfer window closes in two weeks and that might be keeping their options open, but we want to keep our best players and I have absolutely no interest in letting them go.
"I don't expect anyone else to leave before the window closes."
Hammond insisted that the Shorey and Lita situations were different to that of Steve Sidwell - who quit the club on a Bosman transfer in the summer.
"This is not the same scenario because Leroy and Nicky have two years left on their contracts," he said.
"We want to continue moving this club forward. We have made a good start to the season and we want that to continue.
"There seems to be perception that Reading are small club in the Premier League and that is something we want to address. We want to establish this club as a good Premiership one and the way to do that is with performances on the pitch and not losing our best players.
"Although we did very well last season, whatever way you look at it we've only had one year here and that does not make us a top club. That is something we are very keen to address."
Meanwhile, Steve Coppell is set to receive a boost with Lita and Michael Duberry set to passed fit for Saturday's game with Bolton.
"Leroy's doing very well and he may train Thursday," Royals physio Jon Fearn told the club's official website.
"He's just going to do some final work, some shooting practice, but he came through a good session with me on Monday and I think he is looking good for the weekend.
"I'm happy for him to be involved at some point on Saturday, I think it's a bit early to play a whole game but we will see how the week progresses and as I say he is doing very well."
On Duberry, Fearn added: "Michael is doing very well, he is improving and there's a chance he will be back for the weekend. There is always a chance, he has started some light running now and we will take it as it goes but he is improving."
