The Belle Vue club are preparing for the new season after their second straight promotion season when they won last season's Third Division title.
Former Portsmouth hit-man Burton is currently training with fellow League One side Brentford while Deane is still looking for a new club following his release from West Ham United at the end of last season.
The 36-year-old has been linked with a return to Sheffield United and moves to Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United, but the striker has yet to commit his future to any club.
It was also thought that Doncaster were interested in making ambitious moves for Burton and Deane, but Penney was quick to quash those suggestions.
"You will have read about speculation on Deon Burton and Brian Deane, but I can tell you we have not even looked at those two," Penney told Doncaster's official website.
