Hull boss Phil Brown intends to strengthen his squad with a foray into the January transfer market. Brown revealed he has "four or five" transfer targets in mind for the New Year.
"How much I've got to spend in January and what is available in January will be answered around about Christmas, but we've got to plan for that," Brown told the Hull Daily Mail.
"We've already got four or five targets in mind.
"It all depends on how clever you are in the transfer market and how clever you can do your shopping.
"We'll get our ducks in line and hopefully come January 1 we'll be able to hook them in."
Brown accepts that uncertainty in the transfer market makes it difficult to plan for January at this stage.
He explained: "These targets have got two months of their relative season ahead of them and prices fluctuate with form."
