Roux has some talented youngsters at his disposal and Auxerre's performances in the Champions League have seen a number of European big-guns keeping tabs on the likes of Cisse, Khalilou Fadiga, Olivier Kapo, Jean-Alain Boumsong and Philippe Mexes.
French international Cisse, who some have claimed is faster than Thierry Henry, is the hottest property in Le Championnat and Roux is adamant that he is not going anywhere just yet.
"I hear a lot of things. For example that Djibril Cisse would like to join Marseille and other rumours," Roux told L'Equipe.
"I can assert that I am not interested in Marseille's Dollars and Cisse will not be leaving anyway.
"There will be no transfer involving Cisse.
"Cisse will remain at Auxerre next season. If that is not the case that may mean I have left too."
While Cisse looks set to stay in the French top-flight the trio of Fadiga, Kapo and Boumsong all look set to leave.
"I have already said that apart from Kalilou Fadiga, Olivier Kapo and Jean-Alain Boumsong, who have not left yet, I won't start any discussions," continued the veteran coach.
"It is part of the things we can talk about. Nothing has been settled yet."
Arsenal have been linked with Kapo and Cisse while Liverpool have been linked with the trio of Boumsong, Fadiga and Cisse.
