Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis had hoped to have some transfer signings wrapped up by this point in the January window, he revealed at his press conference ahead of the Stoke game.
The Welshman is set to face his former club for the first time since leaving last summer. Stoke City travel to Selhurst Park tomorrow in a game that Crystal Palace need to win, having dropped to 20th in the Premier League.
At the halfway stage in the January transfer window, the Eagles are yet to bring in any new faces.
"I thought we would have had some in by now," Pulis said at his pre-match press conference.
"We need to strengthen certain areas. I would have hopes we'd have an extra player after each game," he added.
Palace are currently rock-bottom of the Premier League and in desperate need of a win tomorrow at home to Stoke.
Pulis had been allegedly given a transfer war chest for reaching 14 points before the window opened, according to The Mirror. But the club are yet to sign anyone.
"We're looking at all areas. We need to." said Pulis. He is rumoured to be interested in bringing in a left back, central midfielder and a striker before the window slams shut at the end of the month.
