Reading boss Steve Coppell has no intention of parting with any members of his squad in January.
The Royals chief is keen to freshen up his side with the acquisition of a few fresh faces, but will not be looking to offload anybody.
The likes of Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle have been strongly linked with a New Year step up into the Premier League, with the Irish duo having impressed in the second tier this term.
However, with Reading currently sat second in the Championship table, Coppell is reluctant to send any of his players towards the Madejski Stadium exit.
He told the Reading Evening Post: "I would like to enhance the squad and I am not contemplating selling anyone. There is money available, I have never been refused funds for players and we need a couple of things.
"You get vulnerable after January. In certain positions if you get injuries or suspensions then you can be exposed and it is my job to evaluate where those holes are and try to do something about it.
"I am strong in midfield, but I have question marks up front and that is the main area of concern really.
"I have the opportunity to do something in January, but I think the whole transfer situation is a farce, I think the loan situation is a farce and I think Championship clubs are playing into the hands of Premiership clubs."
Coppell has also vowed not to respond to speculation this season after seeing his New Year preparations last season thrown into disarray as a result of fending off transfer gossip.
"The one lesson I did learn from last year is that you waste so much time responding to speculation. There'll be no response to speculation from here," he told Sky Sports News.
"If somebody makes a serious offer for one of my players I'll let it be known and if we make a serious offer for any players, with the permission of the other club, I'll it be known again.
"But otherwise I'm just not going to go there. I'm going to ignore it. My business is preparing the team and any business we do, as always, we will try and do as privately as we possibly can."
