Sir Alex Ferguson has attempted to explain why he doesn't expect Manchester United to do any transfer business this month - and that includes signing Frank Lampard from Chelsea.

After successive losses to Blackburn and Newcastle, once again the issue of United's squad is the subject of hot debate amongst Red Devils supporters. Midfield is an obvious area of concern, which has only heightened since the retirement of Paul Scholes and subsequent long-term absences of Tom Cleverley and Darren Fletcher.

Although Lampard does not appear to be one of Andre Villas-Boas' favourites at Stamford Bridge, Ferguson moved to somewhat dispel the rumours, saying: "You are not going to tell me Chelsea would sell Frank Lampard to Manchester United in January. Do you really believe that?"
