Thomas, who was included in the England squad for the Six Nations, is widely expected to join Bath while Gaskell has been strongly linked with London Wasps.
"Jamma and Henry are moving on at the end of the season and replacements are being sought as we speak," Diamond told the Manchester Evening News. "We're confident that we'll replace the lads and we wish them all the best. It's the nature of the beast that while some players want to stay other wish to move on.
"Henry is of the opinion that he'll progress further internationally by moving on. As regards to Jamma, he's moving to London after being at Sale for six years and he wants a change in his life as well as a different challenge.
"With both Henry and Jamma its not a money issue as to why they are moving on - its purely for rugby/lifestyle reasons. There's no rancour or bad feeling and we'll wish both of the lads good luck when they do move on."
