Ferguson unmoved by January sales


Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson isn't planning a multi-million pound spending spree in the January transfer window to replace his injury hit stars.

With Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher unlikely to feature for the remainder of the season, and Tom Cleverley and Anderson still out with long-term injuries, talk has been rife that the Scot may be forced to invest this winter.

However, despite the additional losses of Phil Jones and Jonny Evans, Ferguson isn't likely to venture into the window.

"I don't think I'll change my tactic on that [buying in January] because, if there's a player who I have been interested in, and he was available in January, we would try and do business," said Ferguson.

"But there's no such player really on the horizon that way, unless we can identify someone we've been monitoring a lot because we don't buy just on a whim at this club.

"Normally, we try and have a good progress report on the player, particularly background information on him and there's no-one at this moment in time who meets that criteria."
