Norwich chief executive David McNally has confirmed that the club will not sell any star players when next month's transfer window reopens.
Captain Grant Holt has been linked with a move after his fine start to life back in the Championship, but McNally insists that manager Paul Lambert is in charge of the situation at Carrow Road.
McNally insists the club are planning to bring in new signings rather than selling any players.
"The club is under absolutely no pressure to sell any players this January," McNally told the club's official website:.
"If we did decide to sell a player, Paul Lambert would be the key decision maker and 100 percent of monies from any sale would be used to reinvest in the squad.
"I can also confirm that we have not had any recent offers for any of our players.
"Paul has identified a few players he would like to bring to the club and work is well underway in attempting to complete some business."
Extra banNorwich defender Leon Barnett has been handed an extra two-game suspension for throwing the ball at referee Simon Hooper.
Barnett was dismissed by Hooper in the closing stages of the 2-0 home defeat to Portsmouth on December 11 after bringing down David Nugent for a penalty.
The former West Brom man reacted angrily by hurling the ball at Hooper and was subsequently charged by the Football Association with improper conduct.
An FA hearing decided on Wednesday that Barnett should serve a further two-match ban meaning he misses the Boxing Day visit to Crystal Palace and the visit of Sheffield United on December 28.
