Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out any prospect of adding to his squad during this month's transfer window.

The Manchester United boss had been considering his options, knowing his side have moved top of the Premier League despite rarely hitting top form.

"I won't be going into the transfer market during the present mid-winter window," Ferguson told United Review. "I thought at one time that I would like to bring in just one player, but that has not worked out."

United do have two matches in hand on nearest rivals Manchester City, the first of which will be played at Blackpool on Tuesday.

But with City hitting a rich vein of form, Arsenal looking less vulnerable that before and Chelsea starting to put a sequence of wins together, Ferguson understandably checked the strength of the players at his disposal.

However, Ferguson, who has repeatedly stated there is "no value" in the market, has opted not to make a move, in the knowledge long-term injury victim Antonio Valencia will return from an ankle injury at the end of next month.

He added: "I don't feel that it is necessary to buy just for the sake of it because, as I say, I am more than happy with my squad."
