Everton manager Sean Dyche wants to keep hold of the likes of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Amadou Onana, who have been linked with moves away from the club amid their breach of profit and sustainability rules.
Dyche says he hasn't been told by anyone at the club that they have to sell players this month.
"No," he said when asked whether this was the case.
He added: "That's certainly not what I'm aware of at this moment in time. Certainly nothing has been promoted to me with that thought.
"We want to keep all the best players here the best we can and make sure we're trying - even though it's tricky circumstances, that's clear - to at least manage the group we've got, and then build on it where we can, if the right situation occurs where there can be some form of getting a deal done.
"But obviously, it is quite a difficult window, we've seen that not just for us, we've seen that with the amount of money spent compared to other windows, very, very low at the minute."
