Mark Hughes insists Stoke will not be looking to make any major additions in the January transfer window.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp insists he has no concerns over the prospect of losing Charlie Austin in the January transfer window.
QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar is yet to decide his future - but a return to Brazilian football has been ruled out.
The 33-year-old has had an excellent campaign since joining Rangers from Inter Milan last summer.
He has already been linked with a move back to Italy, as well as with Arsenal.
Now with QPR's relegation confirmed, his future appears unclear - but his agent Josias Cardoso insists that the club will decide.
"Everything said on the player's future is absolutely premature, there is still nothing concrete," Cardoso told Calciomercato.
"Julio wants a team that proves it has a focus on him, but anyone interested in him will have to talk first with QPR, because the contract with the London club expires in 2016.
"In two weeks I should come to Europe to talk with Julio - but back to Brazil? I don't think so. If QPR were to decide to sell Julio Cesar, I still see a European future for him."
