David Moyes: 'Manchester United will not panic buy'

Manchester United manager David Moyes is adamant that he will not use the January transfer window to make wholesale changes at Old Trafford, despite his side facing an uphill battle to salvage their struggling season.

The Red Devils are 13 points behind league leaders Arsenal after slipping to a second successive home defeat last weekend, a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

Perhaps more worryingly for United they are seven points adrift of a Champions League qualifying spot, with noisy neighbours Manchester City currently occupying fourth spot.

Moyes has been linked with a whole host of additions when the window opens next month, but believes that panic buying would be detrimental to his long-term vision for the club.

He told The Mirror: "I will try to do the right things. In any transfer window you don’t want to be bringing in a full batch of players.

"The last one would be a difficult one after just joining the club so we’ve got a window in January where we think if it’s right for the club we will do so.

"If not, we will look again in the summer. This club is always looking to bring in the best talent and that won’t change.

"I tend to take my time and try to assess what are the best talents to bring in. You can see from the players I brought in at Everton, the other night you would say they were all very good choices."

The Scot signed just one player in a frustrating first summer in charge at Old Trafford, with Marouane Fellaini completing a £27.5m switch from Goodison Park to join Moyes.

United were thwarted in their attempts to sign a whole host of targets before settling on Fellaini, with moves for Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera and Wesley Sneijder all falling through.
