Moyes: Transfer window no quick fix

Manchester United manager David Moyes believes the club’s current problems will not be solved in the next transfer window.

The Old Trafford outfit endured a hard start to life under Moyes with the club recording inconsistent results in the opening weeks of the season.

But the defending Premier League champions have started to find their rhythm in recent times and are now unbeaten in nine matches in all competitions.

And Moyes is confident that the long and steady approach will prove more beneficial than any quick fix in January.

“This club is always thinking long term,” Moyes said. “I am thinking how are we going to have a side that is going to be competing in the Champions League and right at the top end of the Premier League in four or five years?

“It has to be a continual building process and we will continue to look to do that.

“You couldn't change it all around in any one window anyway. It takes maybe two, three or four windows to do that.

“To make January sound as if that would be the place where everything would be cured and any problems would be resolved would be wrong.

“It is not me saying we are not going to sign any players in January.

“We are going to try to, if the opportunity is there.

“But it has to fit the right criteria. If it doesn't we will have to wait until the summer and see if we can get the players then.”
