West Ham manager Slaven Bilic insists Andy Carroll will not be sold this month.
Sunderland, and Carroll's former club Newcastle, have been linked with moves for the 27-year-old striker, amid reports the Hammers were considering cashing in on a player with a bad injury record.
But Bilic has no intention of getting rid of Carroll, who has looked back to his best recently and scored two goals in his last two matches.
"The club are not willing to listen to offers," Bilic said. "We want Andy to stay and perform like he does in most games.
"Nobody at the club wants to sell him, he's a very good player. But whenever he scores a couple of goals the rumours start.
"The only way he can stop the rumours is to play badly, which we don't want him to do.
"We don't want to sell him. He's very good in the dressing room and I know he's happy here."

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is weighing up whether to throw Dimitri Payet straight in against Liverpool despite the midfielder being a month ahead of schedule in his fitness battle.
French playmaker Payet, one of the stars of West Ham's impressive start to the season, was expected to be sidelined until February with the ankle injury he suffered against Everton in November.
But the 28-year-old has made such a rapid recovery that he could be pitched in from the start when Liverpool visit Upton Park on Saturday.
Bilic said: "Is he in contention to start? Yes.
"He is back, he's been training with us for a couple of days and depending on how he does today I'm expecting him to be in the squad and available for the game.
"We will see how much he is going to participate in the game, but he is back and it's a great boost for us."
