Manchester City's football administrator Brian Marwood has reminded Robinho and Emmanuel Adebayor of their contractual commitment to the club.
The subject of player power has been a hot topic this week following Javier Mascherano and Asmir Begovic's reported refusal to play for Liverpool and Stoke respectively.
Robinho's future has also been the subject of conjecture, and recently he turned down a move to Turkey as he is keen to secure a switch to either Spain or Italy.
Of Robinho's future, Marwood said: "There is no further update on Robinho - there are a couple of clubs that have shown an interest but nothing has developed.
"If he stays beyond the deadline he will be part of the 25."
Striker Adebayor has this week hinted that he could seek a move away from Eastlands before Tuesday's transfer deadline in a bid to secure regular first-team football.
But Marwood has reminded the Togo international that City will have the final say over his future.
He said: "We are no different to any club, they have signed the contract and made a commitment to the football club until both parties decide that they won't be at the club any longer.
"They have to remain professional, they have a contract and they have certain obligations to the football club."
