Ferguson will not buy in January

Sir Alex Ferguson
Ferguson is happy with the players he already has at Old Trafford

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said he will not be adding to his squad in the transfer window.

"I do not think there will be any January transfers, I am happy with what I have got," he said.

"We are probably going to bring back a couple of young players who have been on loan. That may just give us extra protection," he added.

"We took 23 players to Japan and they are substantial players. I would be happy to play any one of them."


United won the World Club Cup in Yokohama on Sunday by beating LDU Quito 1-0 in the final.

Ferguson added: "Winning the competition was a great boost to the club and the players. It was a great achievement and the important thing was they played well.

"They showed good enthusiasm through the matches and good concentration. We have come through it well."

Ferguson's only signing during the summer's transfer window was striker Dimitar Berbatov, who cost 30m from Tottenham.
