Manchester City chairman Thaksin Shinawatra has declared he won't shell out for major signings this summer.

"I know from what we have shown already this year that a top-six spot will not be too much pressure but to break into the top four will," said Thaksin.

"So that is when I will be prepared to spend a lot of money; to take us into the top four.

"The message is this: I will not be spending huge amounts of money this summer but next summer I will."
