Ross County co-manager Steven Ferguson says he is not aware of any offers for any of his players in the January transfer window.
In recent weeks striker Brian Graham has been linked with a move to Championship club Partick Thistle, while Tom Grivosti has reportedly been attracting interest from Ipswich Town down south.
English duo Carlisle United and Barrow are said to want Declan McManus, while Ross Stewart has been linked with Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers.
Ferguson though does not expect anything to happen in terms of incomings or outgoings imminently.
“That wouldn’t surprise me if there were other clubs looking at our players, and asked the question,” Ferguson admitted.
“As we sit, there’s nothing. “There are the rumour mills and the tit for tat that goes on at this stage of the season.
“It’s no surprise, Brian for instance is a player that a number of clubs would want to get a hold of, but as it stands at the moment that’s all hearsay and rumours.
“Until somebody comes and tells us that this is what they would like to happen, or makes an offer, it can only ever be hearsay.
“I’m going to stay away from guessing, at the moment there’s nothing.”
In terms of signings, County may be looking to width this month.
Simon Power’s loan spell from Norwich finished on Monday, while Michael Gardyne and Ross Stewart are both on the injury list, but while that may be a priority it is not the only area Ferguson will try to improve.
“It’s one of a few areas that we would look to see if we can strengthen,” he said.
“People aren’t stupid, they will look at that and see that it’s obviously an area where we’re short.
“We do have players that can play in that area, and they will definitely be considered, but if there was something that came up that we felt would strengthen the group we would definitely look at it – not just in that area but in a number of areas.”
