No January signings for United - Fergie



Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has warned the club's fans not to expect any major signings to arrive at Old Trafford during the January transfer window.

Writing in the club programme prior to United's Premier League home game with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, Ferguson said he was happy with the players at his disposal and was not interested in making any "serious" signings.

"Don't hold your breath waiting for Manchester United to jump through the transfer window when it opens next week," he wrote.

"It's been open season to link us with a stack of players, admittedly some very good ones, but it just isn't going to happen.

"You can never say never in football because you don't know who might become available, but speaking generally, I am not looking to do any serious business in January.

"I don't have to because I am more than satisfied with the players I have in my squad, a group as good as I have had in my time at Old Trafford."

United went into the weekend's fixtures with a seven-point lead over second-place Manchester City in the English top tier.
