Roberto Martinez has insisted that the club doesn't need to sell their players as we're financially healthy.
Top scorer Jason Scotland has recently told the press that he'll consider moving on in the Summer if a Premiership club were to show an interest.
However, Martinez has responded by saying that even if a club made a bid which met their valuation of a player, they'd still consider whether selling would be the right footballing choice for Swansea City.
One of the main concerns for next year is if Swansea City can match or improve on this season's achievements.
A number of players have put themselves in the 'shop window' by performing well. The likes of Angel Rangel, Jason Scotland, Joe Allen and Jordi Gomez have all caught the eye of a number of scouts.
"We don`t have to sell players and I don`t want to sell any players, I`m very proud of that.
"Even if a Premiership club meets our valuation of a player, then we have to see if it is a good decision for Swansea. If it is something that goes against this club, it won`t happen.
"Everyone has a price, but the good thing about this club is that we don`t have to make a decision from the financial point of view. Every decision will be based on footballing reasons.
"In that sense the fans can be very, very proud of this club because we are doing things in the right way. We don`t have to be worried about losing players, just proud that Premiership clubs are interested in them.
"Our challenge is just to keep improving the squad. We have done that in every transfer window so far."
Martinez also insisted that he doesn't want to sell striker Jason Scotland and says he'll be here for the start of next season in August, he added:
"He is under contract so he is going to be here (in August),"
"We don`t need to sell him and we want him to be an important player for us next season.
"Jason is a late developer. I don`t think he is the same as other players at his age.
"His best years are still in front of him. He is not like a normal 30-year-old where, having started at 18, his body is damaged.
"Jason is exactly the opposite and his experience is helping his talent to be effective on the pitch. So the older he gets, the more experienced and clinical he will be and he still has many, many years in front of him."
