Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert remains hopeful of adding to his squad before the transfer deadline falls.

Lambert is still striving to add to his squad before the transfer window closes.

But he said: "Whatever happens next week will happen.

"If we can't get anybody in then there's no point me dwelling on it or worrying about it. You just go with the lads who are here.

"Can I be sure I will get people in? No. You can only play with the hand you've got, and if that's the case I will go with it."
