Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett today insisted Bakary Sako and Kevin Doyle will not be allowed to leave when the loan window opens.
Fans have been concerned whether the pair would be loaned out with the window due to open next Monday.
Wolves rejected multiple bids from Nottingham Forest, culminating in an offer believed to be around £3.5m for Sako on deadline day, while Leicester had talks over Doyle.
But Jackett stressed there is no need to sell or loan the stars out as the club look to keep their best players for an all-out assault on promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt.
“The chairman has said to me all along it would have to be a bid that we couldn’t turn down,” said Jackett, who saw Sako score in normal time and in the penalty lottery in last night’s 4-2 shoot-out win over Walsall in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. “We’re not looking to move Sako out – we want to add and not take away.
“You can’t say a player is not for sale because no club can ever say that, but it would take a considerable bid for us to sell one of our best players.
“Another bid did come in for Sako and was turned down.”
As for Doyle, who missed last night’s Trophy tie with a thigh injury, Jackett stressed: “There’s no suggestion of letting him out on loan.
“If we need to add we will but we’re certainly not looking to take away from the squad which is playing and contributing very well.”
Sako missed Saturday’s 3-1 win at Port Vale because he wasn’t fully focused but Jackett added: “Sako is 100 per cent committed to the club and I’m pleased to have him back in the fold.”
