​Southampton not in a position to sell players

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has revealed the Saints cannot afford to sell any players in January and are even looking to bring a couple in.

"Our players are interesting for other clubs. That shows that we do a good job here because they want to have them.

"For us there is no option because we need every player, I trust every player. We need not to let anybody go.

"I don't want to talk about any rumours. Nobody was in my office and wanted to leave us. Also, we don't have to sell any players. Maybe we want to bring one or two in.

"The squad has good balance, we have a fantastic atmosphere. All the success we had in the last weeks was not based on one or two or the first XI. It was based on 20 players who are going in the same direction and I don't see any reason why I should change this."
