Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson says that he is reluctant to be "tied down" with lots of players by the end of the January transfer window.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that he does not want to sign players in the January transfer window 'for the sake of it'.

Despite improving Palace's fortunes in the Premier League, Hodgson wants to add new faces to his Eagles squad and the former England boss is likely to bring in a new defender and striker.

However, while acknowledging that he needs to strengthen before the end of the month, Hodgson says that he is reluctant to get "tied down" with too many players.

The 70-year-old told reporters: "I don't know how many players we can bring in. I don't want to be tied down to a number.

"We need people in, there is no question of that. We don't want to bring players in for the sake of bringing them in."

Palace have been linked with West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho and Everton forward Oumar Niasse in recent days.
