Derby County boss Billy Davies admits he'll be buying outside the UK in January.
"We have identified a list of players," said Davies. "We are looking at one or two possibilities in Britain and we have identified several foreign players, what I call 'door openers', little gems in the side we need.
"Of these six players, two or three will be foreign signings if we can get them.
"Myself and my staff are now ready to go and look at these players who we feel will provide the quality required to sustain a Premier League challenge."
