Motherwell have rejected bids from English clubs for Shaun Hutchinson and Nicky Law.
Hutchinson, a youth product at Fir Park, was subject to an offer from a Championship club. STV understands the bid made was for circa £250,000.
The Steelmen have claimed Law, signed from Rotherham United last summer, is wanted by a team in League One but their bid of around £100,000 has been turned down.
“Whilst we understand every player at this club has a value, we also need to ensure we protect our interests by getting the right price for our talent,” Motherwell boss Stuart McCall told the club’s official website.
“Shaun has been terrific for us since I arrived at the club and has been a virtual ever-present in that time. He has all the raw materials you would want from a centre-back; he’s young, big and powerful and the experience of playing in the Europa League and Champions League is standing him in good stead.
“He is already a top player, I would say he’s one of the hottest young talents in the SPL, and we are certain he’ll mature into an even better defender as his experience grows. That’s why any offer for him needs to be realistic.
“Nicky has been the cornerstone of a lot of success going forward over the last twelve months and is vital to us. His contribution from midfield was key in qualifying for Europe last term and any offer for him would have to reflect his contribution to our side.
“Rejecting both offers, which were significant in Motherwell terms, is also a sign of intent from the clubs’ board that they are not prepared to accept any bid that comes our way.
“Unless a vastly-improved offer comes in then it is business as usual.”
English-born central defender Hutchinson, 21, made his Motherwell debut in 2009 in a local derby with Hamilton Academical. He has gone on to play 68 times, finding the net on six occasions.
Law, 24, started his career at Sheffield United, spending time on loan at Yeovil Town and Bradford City before joining Rotherham United in 2009.
He moved north of the border just over a year ago and was a star man for McCall’s side as they qualified for the Champions League through finishing third in the SPL, scoring seven times in 46 appearances.
