Lambert plans to strengthen his Norwich squad in the January transfer window - but insisted he would not be signing big-time Charlies.
Canaries boss Paul Lambert said: "We won't have major bucket-loads of money.
"But we will have a bit of cash available and I will try to get people in who will complement the group of players that is already here.
"We have to look to try to give these players a helping hand in the window. It's not a great time to spend money because prices are inflated and sometimes you can panic buy or buy for the sake of buying.
"But we won't be bringing in any big-time Charlies because I wouldn't put up with somebody trying to disrupt what we have here."
