Caley Thistle manager John Robertson insists he has contingency plans in place should Inverness face an exodus of players this month.
Inverness have faced advances for a number of their players who are out of contract in the summer, and are now able to speak to interested sides.
Ross County are hoping to thrash out a deal to sign Coll Donaldson, while Dundee and St Johnstone are on the trail of Shaun Rooney, Partick Thistle are interested in Jamie McCart and St Mirren are believed to be in pursuit of Jordan White.
While no confirmation of any deal has yet been received, Inverness have already started their January recruitment by signing Falkirk defender Lewis Toshney on an 18-month deal.
The Highlanders are also stepping up their efforts to bring forward Shane Sutherland, who was released by the club in 2013, back to Caledonian Stadium from League 2 side Elgin City.
Although Robertson knows he runs the risk of losing players, he is confident the Highlanders will not be caught out.
Robertson said: “We get inquiries a lot during the season, and in January they will become a little bit more official. That’s the way it is – we have got to deal with it.
“Don’t think for one moment we are not making inquiries. That’s what you do – we are very proactive.
“We have known for a while now that certain players have been attracting a particular level of interest, so we have been making moves ourselves to make sure we are well covered.
“We have got plans in place for nearly every scenario. In football, there is always a scenario that pops up that might catch you in the hop but we are pretty comfortable with where we are at the moment.”
Robertson is refusing to be drawn on the names of any more potential incomings following the arrival of former Celtic and Ross County defender Toshney, adding: “We have been linked with two or three players. We will keep our cards close to our chest, and as I have said 100 times before we will not speculate on anybody until they have actually signed, and then we will announce it.
“There are a few players we are keen on and we think could add to our squad.
“There are still a lot of days left in January. As a lot of managers will tell you, it’s quite a relief when the window closes because you know that’s what you’ve got until the end of the season.”
