Bryan Robson concedes he may have to sell before adding to his Sheffield United squad, but has reiterated he will not be cashing in on James Beattie.
The Blades have endured an indifferent season since relegation from the Premier League, but the form of summer signing Beattie has been a plus point.
The striker's 12 goals since his £4million move from Everton have seen the former England international linked with a return to the top flight.
But Robson has fielded no offers for Beattie and the Blades boss has no intention of letting the 29-year-old leave Bramall Lane.
"Nobody has come in and offered anything for James Beattie," Robson told Sky Sports News.
"As far as I'm concerned, he has had a good time at Sheffield United, he is scoring goals and working hard up front, so as far as I'm concerned he'll be staying at the club."
When asked if he would need to move players on before bringing new ones in, Robson replied: "I think it would probably be a case of that.
"You never know unless people come in and offer you good money for players.
"In January we've always said that you'll try and improve the squad if you possibly can, and that's what we'll try and do."
