Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier is targeting two new signings for the January market.
He said he will not be adding many new names to the squad when the transfer window re-opens.
"I don't think I will make many moves because a lot of players will come back," Houllier said.
"I don't want to buy players that are the same as what we already have.
"With the current injuries, it is definitely midfield that we need players. I believe we can still finish in the top six but we need to have a good run.
"When we have got everybody back and if we manage to get two players in then maybe we can do well."
