Barcelona captain Carles Puyol is happy to see management stepping up their transfer plans.

Asked about the prospect of calling Deportivo La Coruna wing-back Luis Filipe and Palmeiras striker Keirrison as new Barca teammates, Puyol replied: "If Barca is following them, it means they are good players.

"But it's not up to me to decide those who we should buy."

Puyol also was asked about Barca's bid for Valencia striker David Villa and said: "I don't know anything yet. But, certainly, he would be a big signing."
