West Brom boss Di Matteo keeping powder dry over January market plans

West Bromwich Albion boss Roberto di Matteo doesn't expect a busy January market.

Provided he has a fully-fit squad, Di Matteo has revealed he will only be looking to sign one player in the window to add an 'extra dimension' to his men.

"It's a bit too early to start planning what we're going to do in January because we don't know how it is going to pan out with Jonas Olsson," Di Matteo told the WBA website.

"We don't know how we're going to be regarding injuries because there are so many games to be played before the January window opens.

"We're scouting all the time and always looking at what could improve our team.

"It's always a gamble bringing in a player in January.

"Sometimes it's better to stick with what you have.

"If we are injury-free come January, I think we could do with bringing in one more player to give us an extra dimension.

"But they come at a price!"
