Watford manager Roy Hodgson told Sky Sports News he is happy to work with the players he currently has at his disposal when he was quizzed on his plans for the remainder of the transfer window.
Hodgson replaced Claudio Ranieri, who was sacked on Monday after three-and-a-half months in charge, with Watford 19th in the table, two points from safety.
The Englishman has been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace at the end of last season.
“I haven’t seen all the players yet to be frank – there are players injured and players away in the Africa Cup of Nations so I couldn’t even say,” Hodgson said.”On paper, the squad is a very big one, they have a lot of merits otherwise they would not be representing their countries as they are at the moment, so it is far too early to say.
“But that isn’t my major goal anyway. I have five months. My goal is to help the club stay in the league and basically I am more than happy to do that with the players that are here already.
“And if the owner decides he wants to present somebody else, of course we will look into it, but there will be no knocking on his door from my point of view, saying we should do this and that, because it’s far, far too early.
