As United continue to be linked with Sao Paulo playmaker Lucas Moura and Everton defender Leighton Baines, Ferdinand admitted that the players are just as much in the dark as supporters over Sir Alex Ferguson's transfer plans.
"We're excited by the new signings, just like fans," he said. "You walk down the street and people ask who we're signing but we want to know as well. I'm always asking the management about their plans.
"The manager has got all the answers in his back pocket but he won't tell us. We're like fans in that respect and we just wait for the next person to come through the door."
