"I've no idea if there will be signings," said Southgate.
"I've said to the players that our attitude has to be to stay positive as a group. We can't affect things that are out of our control.
"I've kind of stopped them talking about possible new signings.
"If it did happen it would give everyone a lift but I can't put my hand on my heart and say it is going to happen - we'll just have to see who is available and who is in our price range."
