Hull wont spend in January

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has revealed he isn't looking to add any new players to his squad in the January transfer window, after the KC Stadium side enjoyed a fantastic start to the season in the Premiership.

He said: "The January window is an artificial market created for bizarre reasons.

"As far as we're concerned we build a squad for the beginning of the season for the coming campaign.

"January is available if we need cover because of injury but I feel too many sides bring in new blood mid-season that disrupts the dressing-room.

"We had 12 new players come here during the summer and it takes a long time for them to bed in. A few have yet to start a first-team game.

"I suspect we'll look upon January as an option but certainly not a must-do to spend money."
