Manchester United's incoming manager David Moyes has been warned off bidding for Everton pair Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines by Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright.
Kenwright unveiled Moyes' replacement Roberto Martinez on Wednesday and the former Wigan Athletic boss has already been linked with bringing former cohorts Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman to Goodison Park.
Latics chairman Dave Whelan has claimed he will not stand in either player's way should Martinez move for the pair with Wigan preparing for life in the Championship despite beating Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
However, Kenwright is unwilling to be hospitable to rival bids from Moyes upon his official arrival United, claiming Everton's players are committed as ever following the arrival of Martinez.
"I'm not Dave Whelan. I've not said to David [Moyes]: 'David, come on.' I've said exactly the opposite. I've said to David [Moyes]: 'We all know the situation at Everton," Kenwright said. "We all know there's a player who's got an escape clause, but the others are not for sale.
"I'm as in love with this football squad as any Evertonian out there. They are this club and we don't want them to go," he continued.
"They have worked massively hard for this club. Roberto doesn't want them to go either. He's got all of their phone numbers.
"He's going to be on the phone to all of them saying: 'We don't want you to go.' And they don't want to go. Not one person has even half-indicated to me that the change will mean a change for them. Exactly the opposite - they all seem totally committed to it.
"So, yeah, I'm confident that squad, plus some Roberto signings, will form this football club's squad for next season."
Both Fellaini and Baines have been heavily linked with joining Moyes at United ahead of the new campaign after both played a pivotal role in Everton's sixth place finish in the Premier League.
While Fellaini scored 12 goals last season and finished as the club's scorer, Baines scored five times and made five assists and was subsequently voted into the PFA Team of the Season.
Moyes begins his tenure officially as United boss on 1 July, but both Mike Phelan and Eric Steele have left the club from the backroom team in the first move at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson departure as manager.
