No major additions to Man U squad: Fergie

London, Jan.1 (ANI): Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out the possibility of making major additions to his Manchester United squad during the January transfer window.

"Inevitably, people look to this month's transfer window as a solution to our injury worries but it is not the answer," The Mirror quoted Ferguson as telling the United Review.

Ferguson also rejected reports that he plans to recruit 36-year-old ex-Portsmouth star Sol Campbell.

United still have injury problems, but Nemanja Vidic and Wes Brown turned out at Hull last weekend and were fit enough to face Wigan at Old Trafford as the Red Devils recorded only their second clean sheet in six games during a five-goal romp.

With Jonny Evans and Rio Ferdinand also nearing recovery, Ferguson sees no need to spend any more of the 80-million pounds he received from Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo last summer.

He said: "If someone could give me the name of a really good centre-half who would accept a three-month contract then I would jump at the chance. But where do you find a player like that?

"It is difficult enough leaving good players out of the team without adding another to the mix, so I won't be looking for a senior player to ease our defensive crisis," he added. (ANI)
