Bayern Munich insist they will not be selling any of their players during the winter transfer window as their squad size is too small.
It had been thought that Bayern could be willing to part with some of their fringe first-team players who are growing frustrated at a lack of regular action.
Croatia forward Ivica Olic recently voiced his displeasure while Croat Danijel Pranjic has also been unhappy with his substitute role at the Bundesliga leaders.
However, Bayern, who are competing for three titles have one of the smallest squads in the league with 24 players including four goalkeepers.
Manager Jupp Heynckes is against parting company with any of his players and chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge concurs, insisting no one will be leaving in the New Year on a permanent transfer.
"We will definitely not sell any player (in the winter)," Rummenigge told the club's official website. "The coach does not want it and I think he is completely right.
"With 20 outfield players we have a relatively small squad so quantity-wise we are at the lower limit. I hope we will still be in all three competitions after the winter break and so we will need a squad that is at least this size."
