Thomson has been linked with a move to Celtic, while Rangers are believed to be weighing up a January bid for Whittaker (pictured).
The youngsters are key members of Mowbray's plans at Easter Road and he has no intention of selling the pair.
With Thomson and Whittaker both under contract for a further three years, Mowbray admits there is no need to consider any offers from the Old Firm.
"Both players have long-term contracts and are part of the future plans for Hibs," said Mowbray.
"I am very confident they'll be going nowhere.
"The speculation, I expect, will continue until the January transfer window shuts but we dealt with it all last season when nothing happened."
