Mixu Paatelainen has assured Hibs fans that Steven Fletcher and Yves Ma-Kalambay will not be leaving the club.
Hibs have already seen French midfielder Guillaume Beuzelin leave Easter Road to Championship club Coventry, and both Fletcher and Ma-Kalambay have been linked with moves away from Easter Road in recent months.
Fletcher has been linked with Celtic, Rangers and Real Madrid, while reports suggested Ma-Kalambay had said goodbye to his team-mates before the summer break.
However, Hibs chief Paatelainen insists the pair will remain in Edinburgh.
"Steven and Yves will both be at Hibs next season," Paatelainen told the Daily Record:
"Steven is progressing well and has a long-term contract. When the time is right for him to move forward, we will help him do that."
