Man Utd boss Ferguson doesn't expect busy January market

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is being coy on their plans for the January market.

"It'll be interesting to see what kind of market we've got in January," he said. "I don't think it's always as good as people think it is, but some - particularly Chelsea - will use this particular window to galvanise their squad because they've got one or two players injured and four players away at the African Nations Cup.

"Arsenal are a little bit more comfortable with that situation, they've only got two players going and they're in a better position than Chelsea in the league at the moment.

"January's difficult because if you're in the Champions League then hopefully you're going to add someone who is able to play in it, which of course is difficult because you're eliminating something like 100-and-odd teams who have played in Europe, so it's not so easy."
