Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson won't panic buy in January.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson won't panic buy in January.

United have been linked also with a number of midfield players, including Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote and Ajax’s Danish prodigy, Christian Eriksen.

Ferguson, though, insists the recent form of his team ­vindicates his decision to resist panic buying and keep faith in his current squad.

He said: “We’re quite happy with what we’ve got. We should get Anderson back in a couple of weeks and the form of Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick has been outstanding.

“I’m lucky I’ve got versatile players like Ji-sung Park, ­Antonio Valencia and Giggs who can play in a variety of positions and give me options.

“The crucial thing, though, is to get our centre-backs back.

“That’s the only caution I have about my team. Forward-wise and in midfield, we’re OK.”
