Although both players still have twelve months remaining on their existing packages, it has been widely touted that extended deals were in the offing.
Pearson (pictured) has swiftly moved to deflate the rumours, however, saying: "I am aware what has been reported in certain sections of the media but I have no meetings planned with either player.
"New contracts have not been discussed. At the moment, it is a case of seeing what happens over the coming months.
"In Theo's case, it's safe to say I would want to see more from him before committing him to a longer contract."
Whitmore was only recently removed from the Boothferry Park transfer list, although he was included in the lacklustre Tigers side which was held to a disappointing goalless draw against Plymouth on Saturday.
