Villa boss Houllier hints at no January business

New Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has played down the prospect of making major squad changes during the January market.

Houllier will eventually look to strengthen the squad further although he hinted the January transfer window is not the ideal time for big changes.

He said: "We know at some stage we need to improve the team gradually.

"But I don't think January is always a good period because you don't get the best (players) but we'll prepare for the future.

"I am quite happy with the squad. When people say Aston Villa is a good club, they also add that they have got good players.

"They must have because they finished in a Europa League position (sixth)."
