Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says he'd never gamble the club's future with over-the-top spending.
He is set to bring in a defender on loan from abroad after Ivan Ramis was ruled out for the season with a serious knee injury.
Martinez said: "We'd never put our football club in danger by spending what we haven't got. We pride ourselves on running the club in a good way so the fans have no need to worry.
"We want to reinvest money in our structure but we know our limitations and we would never get into any trouble.
"Whatever other clubs spend is down to them. If QPR can afford the money that is being mentioned, then that is fantastic."
