Brentford goalkeeper Dan Bentley is hopeful that the Bees squad is still intact in two weeks time when the transfer window closes.
After making some astute deals earlier this summer, the focus has been on whether there will be any outgoings at Griffin Park.
Harlee Dean and Jota have been the two most likely to depart, given that both are in the final years of their contracts, but the Bees stopper is keen to see the pair remain despite interest from Leeds and West Ham respectively.
Bentley said: "I hope everyone stays. The obvious ones are being linked with clubs here, there and everywhere.
"Jota has been linked with half of the Football League. We want to keep the boys together. We've got a great team spirit.
"Football is a funny old game and the powers that be at the club will be working hard to keep people together.
"It's the same with anyone. Everyone has their roles and parts to play. Harlee is a vocal member of the group and is vital as any player is. We've got our own responsibilities and roles and Harlee is no different."
Dean's suspension at Sheffield United saw Andreas Bjelland partner John Egan but, against Bristol City, he saw the centre back return with Yoann Barbet as his partner.
Some players may be shaken by the changes but Bentley has total faith in any player selected in front of him.
He added: "I trust everyone that's in front of me, whether it's centre halves, full backs all the way up to Lasse and Neal.
"We all trust each other. We all want to win games and get as high up the league as possible."
The goalkeeper's mood has not been helped by shipping seven goals in the first three games of the campaign and he is itching for it to remain on that number for as long as physically possible.
He explained: "Anyone that knows me knows me and sees the way I train, I despise conceding goals.
"I don't care how and I don't like the ball going in the back of the net.
"Conceding the amount of goals I have in three games is not what I condone and I'm sure the manager and team won't either. It's down to a bit of luck and we'll be working hard to get that clean sheet on Saturday."
