Bournemouth reportedly missed out on at least one player last month, however, with two bids rejected for Brentford centre-back Chris Mepham - the second worth £7m - but Howe is happy to push on with his current group until the end of the campaign.
Speaking to reporters at his pre-match press conference ahead of the visit of Stoke City on Saturday, Howe said: "I always maintained throughout the journey here that I have total belief in my players and I think that's the only way you can work.
"The aim for me has always been to improve the players that we have rather than look for new players to make a difference. It doesn't mean that the transfer marker isn't important to us. It was something we were continually looking at and seeing what possibilities there were for us in the market."
