Leicester manager Claude Puel says he isn’t looking to add to his squad this month and insists he is happy to work with his current crop of players.

The Foxes crashed out of the FA Cup at the third round stage after losing to League Two outfit Newport County on Sunday.

Puel made seven changes to his starting eleven for that clash as he looked to hand opportunities to some of the fringe players.

They lacked creativity in the final third but Puel isn’t allowing the result to change his thinking over potential business in January. The Frenchman isn’t convinced that he can find the right quality of player to enhance his squad this month and says he will continue to develop the players currently available.

Puel said: “We will see what will happen in the transfer window, but I think in the winter transfer window we cannot have good possibilities and good players available.

“We need to keep our focus on the team, to play all the Premier League games remaining and then we will see in the summer.

“It will be better to find the right solution then to improve the team.”

Leicester only have the Premier League to focus on during the second half of the campaign and they currently sit seventh after winning three of their last four matches, including victories over Chelsea and Manchester City.

They can be backed at 2.00 to win their next league engagement when they host Southampton, who are priced at 3.80 to come out on top, while the draw is available at 3.50.
