Motherwell manager Graham Alexander has revealed the club rejected major offers for Allan Campbell last month.
The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and looks likely to move on then but Motherwell have plenty of work to do to get out of relegation danger.
Alexander made three signings in the final stages of the transfer window and also secured Stephen O’Donnell on a contract extension.
O’Donnell’s Scotland team-mate, Declan Gallagher, had been linked with a move to Celtic but he has also stayed at Fir Park.
“For me the biggest bonus is keeping our best players in the building,” Alexander said.
“We knew there was a possibility of them leaving. We turned down substantial bids for Allan Campbell in January.”
Alexander was busy on deadline day with Robbie Crawford also signing an extension and two players arriving.
Blackburn defender Tyler Magloire later completed his loan move until the end of the season.
