Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed that the club will consider doing business in the January transfer window.

The Scot took over from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer, and struggled to make an immediate impact in the market, missing out on a number of high-profile targets before signing Marouane Fellaini.

January offers the Premier League champions an opportunity to strengthen, and whilst Moyes does not believe the first month of the year is always the best time to buy, he’ll be looking to do business.

"I'm not sure it's a brilliant month to do business but we'll be looking, like everybody else,” Moyes told the press, according to the official Manchester United Twitter account.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, after a run of six consecutive victories in the top flight. A win on New Year’s Day could move them up to fourth after a hugely disappointing start to the campaign.

Additions may well be needed to challenge for the title though, and the likes of Koke and Fredy Guarin have been linked with moves to Old Trafford.

The Manchester United manager will clearly be keeping a close eye on the market, and signings aren’t completely out of the question for the Scot.
