Lambert hopeful of Stoke signings; remains coy on Ndiaye move

Paul Lambert is hopeful Stoke City can bring in players before Wednesday's transfer deadline.

The Potters are currently one point above the drop zone and will need reinforcements to ensure they remain in the Premier League for the 11th year-in-a-row.

Talks are underway with Galatasaray over midfielder Badou Ndiaye, but Lambert has refused to comment on the situation.

"(Chief executive) Tony Scholes will deal with that side of things," said Lambert. "We have spoken about players and there is players we think can help, but January is a really difficult month to bring the right type of people in."

Asked whether he had watched Ndiaye, Lambert said: "I have looked at a number of players since I came here. There is a number of lads we have looked at and who we think can help us. If we can get one or two in, then great."
