Hughes insists if his players think that means they will be allowed to leave for other top-flight clubs if QPR go down, they will be disappointed.
Hughes, whose side host Arsenal today, said: "The players have to focus on the next eight games and then decisions on where their futures lie will be determined by where we finish in the league.
"If I feel players need to stay, then that's what will happen.
"I'm sure those contracts wouldn't have been offered if anybody felt it would put the club's future at risk.
"So irrespective of the situation we find ourselves in, we can fulfil our obligations financially.
"I'm here to make sure that, long term, QPR is a healthy club on and off the field. That's still my aim."
