Leeds boss Simon Grayson is not interested in signing a new striker.
Grayson's admission comes in the wake of news that South Africa striker Davide Somma could be ruled out for seven months with a torn cruciate ligament and Luciano Becchio may require surgery on a hamstring.
"A striker isn't a priority," Grayson told the club's official website. "It's a blow to be without Dave and equally with Luciano depending on how we go, but we have other players who can step in there so it's not a priority for me."
The former Blackpool manager went on to quell the anxieties of the Elland Road faithful.
He added: "It's other places in the squad I need to develop and bring in, and we'll continue to look at those avenues.
"It has been a frustrating time in terms of what we're trying to do and I can understand the fans being frustrated.
"We have a good group here who can compete in the Championship, what we need is a bit more depth.
"And as much as you would like to add to your squad at the start of pre-season, you are dictated to by other clubs and players. It happens to everyone."
