Roy Hodgson has revealed there have been no major talks between him and Crystal Palace’s hierarchy about making signings in the January transfer window.
Clubs can do business in a week’s time.
The Eagles have a number of players who are due to be out of contract at the end of the campaign.
Hodgson said: “We haven’t had a lot of discussions about that [the window]. We’ve not sat down and seriously thought ‘what do we need?’ That’s because we have a good squad and a big squad. You don’t want to keep piling players on top of players.
“In every market as a Premier League club like us we have to be alert to any possibility that comes our way and alert to the fact our players whose contracts run out that there is a big decision on extending contracts or accepting they are going to be moving on and leave a gap in the squad.”
