Stoke City chairman Peter Coates insists the club have not made enquiries for West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble and Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies.
Noble has been linked with a £4million move to the Britannia Stadium as Potters boss Tony Pulis considers January signings.
Davies, who is out of favour at Villa and has recently been on loan at Leicester City, has also been linked with a move to Stoke.
However, Coates has played down reports that Pulis is looking to add the duo to his squad before the close of the transfer window.
"We have made no inquiries for either player," Coates told The Sentinel.
West Ham would likely be reluctant to let Noble leave Upton Park as manager Avram Grant seeks to keep his team in the Premier League.
Davies, meanwhile, is expected to depart Villa and has been linked with the likes of Wolves and Werder Bremen in addition to being wanted back at Leicester.
