RALPH Hasenhuttl admits he “isn’t scared” about sticking with the same team for the next three months.

Saints are yet to make any signings in the January transfer window, with Hasenhuttl also saying there isn’t any desperation to get deals done.

He previously said doesn’t want to “destroy the atmosphere within the squad” by adding new players but admitted one new signing wouldn’t do that.

Hasenhuttl said: “If you take one player then I don’t think so.

“If you take three or four players, then it could change a little bit.

“We know we are not that strong in the full-back positions, which means alternatives for Ryan and Cedric.

“But we have Yan Valery, who is training again on the pitch, and Jake Vokins who made a good development.

“It’s not that bad. We aren’t scared about going with this team for the last three months.

“We made a fantastic turnaround with this group and they deserve the credit.”

At the beginning of January, Hasenhuttl made it clear that he wanted experienced players to come in and provide support to both Cedric and Ryan Bertrand.

However, he changed his tune in the build-up to the Wolves match by saying new singings could get in the way of Yan Valery and Jake Vokins’ development.

Tottenham’s Kyle Walker-Peters is a player that has been linked with Saints throughout the window, with the south coast outfit being aware of his availability.

Despite this, Hasenhuttl made it clear that if they are to do any business, then it has to be for the right reasons.

He added: “We are looking for a package that fits us at the moment and the only thing that changed is that we are performing better.

“The problem with the January transfer window is that if you sign a player, he is not really used to the philosophy we play.

“It will take one to two months until he will be on the level our players are.

“We have three more months to go now and it doesn’t make sense to loan somebody until the end of the season and then he is going without an option for us to buy.

“The rest about buying in the winter is not so easy.

“This makes it not so easy but when we find a package that gives us the option to buy in the summer, then it makes sense.”

Defender Jan Bednarek is expected to miss Saints' game with Crystal Palace tomorrow night through injury.

When asked about his current squad's fitness, Hasenhuttl said: “It looks ok.

“We have, with Jan Bednarek, one guy that has a little problem with his Achilles.

“I think, so far, the rest are a little bit tired, but we can have a look.”
