"I think it's just people looking around to see what's available, and who they can get into their club, and they are having to pay top dollar, and over and above top dollar on occasions.
"I'm just grateful for the squad I've got. It's taken three years to get to this side together and I'm grateful that we are in a situation where we don't have to go out in the market place and buy players for the sake of it, paying over the odds."
He added, "But there's a lot of players also going for five, six, seven and eight million, and I look at some of the players that have moved, and I then look at my squad and think they wouldn't improve it.
"So I'm quite comfortable with the situation that we are in."
