Neville: No need for new signings

Ramsey gives statement in Italian at first Juventus press conference

Valencia manager Gary Neville has no plans to delve into the January transfer market despite suffering another league loss to Real Sociedad.

Having held Real Madrid to a 2-2 draw and beaten Granada 4-0 in the Copa del Rey in recent weeks, defeat to the Basque side saw Los Che drop down to 11th in the standings, and extend their winless run to eight La Liga matches.

"Everyone in the dressing room is disappointed, myself more than anyone, but tomorrow everything starts again", he said after Sunday's defeat. "We played below expectations and we have to start winning regularly."

Valencia's league form has not improved since the Englishman took over from Nuno Espirito Santo last month, but the former Manchester United stalwart insists that spending on new players is not the answer.

"I want to play with these players so they can improve together," Neville said. "It's not that the club doesn't want to spend money.

"There have been some important signings and my job is to get the players to perform I believe I have some excellent players and I assume responsibility for the defeat."
