Stoke City boss Tony Pulis insists £8million striker Kenwyne Jones will not be leaving the club.
Jones, the Potters' one-time record signing, has been linked with moves to Premier League rivals Wolves and QPR during next month's transfer window.
But the Trinidad and Tobago international, who went four months without a top-flight start until replacing sick Peter Crouch against Aston Villa, is needed by Pulis ahead of a busy New Year fixture list.
Asked if other clubs want to sign the 27-year-old, Pulis said: "All the best if they think that.
"We are in the FA Cup, still in Europe and fighting for our Premier League status. There's lots on."
The Potters chief intends to keep hold of all his top players, with only those outside the fringes of his squad likely to leave the Britannia.
Midfielders Michael Tonge and Tom Soares have yet to play in any competition this season and will be looking to earn regular first-team action elsewhere.
Danny Pugh and Danny Collins, currently on loan at Leeds and Ipswich respectively, look set to make permanent moves away.
Pulis added: "We want to keep all our top players. The ones we are talking about selling are the ones just below that group.
"They have been banging on my door and we will do our damndest to help them."
