Gareth Southgate: "At any football club, it is great if you can inject new blood in the summer and in the winter.

"But we have to cut our cloth and people have to realise the circumstances under which we are operating.

"Yes, we would like to achieve lots of things, but how quickly that can happen given the constraints that are in place remains to be seen.

"That's why we have to focus very much on the group of players we have, making sure their mentality is right more than anything else, because there is talent in the squad, as there is in any number of teams in this division.

"We have had a poor run of late, but we are still three points off ninth place and four points off eighth, so the league is very, very tight."
