Lampard wants to stay away from reckless signings this January

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is okay with not signing any new players for the Blues this January .

He wants to make sure that these signings are not reckless.

“I don’t want to comment on those deals because I think it’s easy with hindsight,” he said. “The players you mentioned there were top players.

“I think the idea of January being a time to buy players, it’s difficult for everybody – for players coming in, especially if they’re coming from a different league, for the club and for the settlement of the group.

“I think that’s why we have to think ultra carefully and I do care and consider the club and where we’re going.

“I don’t want to make some knee-jerk reaction to say, ‘Here’s my first big signing’ because we couldn’t sign anyone in the summer. No, I want to do the right thing for the club.

“That’s why if I do it I’ll try and consider all things. It will always be in communication with the club.

“Hopefully it’s the best thing for us. Whether that’s more of a short-term option or a long-term option, we’ll also have to consider.”

When questioned whether he was fine without new signing in January, Lampard responded: “I think I should be because that’s where we’re at at the moment.

“If it feels right for us then we’ll do it.”
