As we move to the final couple of weeks of the January transfer window, Chelsea are likely to be linked with a whole host of names. Guus Hiddink has re-iterated that he has no desire to spend any money this month and he is happy with what he has here already.

Speaking last week, Hiddink was asked of names being linked with club, especially strikers such as Alex Texeira and Alexandre Pato who have filled reports for what seems like weeks on end. Hiddink's response was intriguing as he re-iterated that we already have good players here but also added that now would be the time to bring some of the youngsters through.

He said:

"You must be rather desperate if you bring in players in January that is true.

But Chelsea must also look in today’s situation but also the upcoming summer situation regarding signings so you must be careful not to do stupid things.

Also in a new setting there shall be influence of the new staff and manager. ‘There are question marks for Chelsea and for the others the yes-or-nos to come in that’s true and the reality of Chelsea.

So are things on hold? I think so. In principle I’m in favour to bring in young players.

If the circumstances allow that’s what we will do. I’d prefer to do that in the winter period than bringing in certain names.”

Without question the injury picked up by Diego Costa in the 3-3 draw with Everton is a real concern with Loic Remy lacking match fitness. However, with the likes of Patrick Bamford and Bertrand Traore waiting in the wings, it could be a chance to give those people a game when the time is right.

The more you listen to Hiddink, the more you believe him as he seems pretty open and honest about things. If anything, his quotes above are also a message to the Chelsea board to not go out and do anything stupid by making a club signing that clearly at this stage, the manager does not want.

In recent weeks, Chelsea are back to scoring goals and have become quite potent in front of goal compared to the problems we have had previously. If we can sort out our defending as quickly as possible, we can turn these frustrating draws into three points!

I do not expect Chelsea to sign anyone this month. Is that something you agree with? If not, who would you like to see come in?
