James Morrison has questioned the ambitions of West Bromwich Albion.

Midfielder Morrison feels Albion "just settle for being in the Premier League" and could achieve more were head coach Roy Hodgson given additional backing.

When asked if he expected Albion to sign anyone before the transfer window closes on Tuesday, Morrison said: "I doubt it!

"It sums us up. I think it's our policy that we don't bring players in so I don't expect it to happen. This club can go places but it doesn't build. We just settle for being in the Premier League.

"I believe with the group of players we've got we can kick on. We've players here who can easily play top half of the table football. We just need a few reinforcements to the squad because a lot of players are playing a lot of games and a lot of minutes.

"I've got ambitions to progress and this club can do it. It just needs a little bit of help. The manager is an ambitious guy. He's been like that all through his career, and the fans deserve it as well.

"Hopefully we can get a few new faces in and kick on. Anyone coming in always gives you a lift and it keeps you on your toes. It always gives the crowd a lift, but it will probably be someone you don't know!"
