Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has rejected reports linking Charles N'Zogbia and Hugo Rodallega with moves away from the DW Stadium.
France international winger N'Zogbia is believed to be a target of Marseille, while Colombia striker Rodallega is said to be attracting interest from rival clubs.
With the transfer window due to open again on 1st January, Martinez accepts that there will be an increase in speculation regarding his star names.
But the Wigan manager is determined that his squad remain focused on their current quest to climb away from the Premier League drop zone.
The Latics are currently in the bottom three on goal difference ahead of their crucial Boxing Day clash at fellow strugglers Wolves.
Martinez told Sky Sports News HD: "At the moment there is no real truth in it, the window hasn't opened yet.
"We are not going to stop any rumours or any media speculation. If there is anything else the fans will be the first ones to know.
"The players are very aware that the games that we have got in this period are vital for our season and that is where the focus and concentration goes.
"The focus goes to the games that we have got ahead of us. Sunday is a massive, massive game, and it would be a big mistake for us to look ahead and think about players who could come in or who could leave.
"Every point in the Premier League is so important and our focus goes to Sunday, nothing else."
