Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert remains hopeful of adding to his squad this month.

Lambert, though, retains total belief in his current squad.

"If I have to go with the group I have got, then I've got no problems.

"I would like one or two new faces. We are trying to do something within the structure of the club. But we won't be able to do something like that. Absolutely not a chance.

"We'd try to do something if I thought the people we could get in would make it better. But if we can't do it and I have to go with the group that's there, then I'll go with what's there."
