Norwich City are set to have a quiet January transfer window, according to Sporting Director Stuart Webber.
The former Huddersfield man has said that he does not expect Norwich to be busy come the opening of the next transfer window.
The Canaries had one of their busiest ever summer transfer windows in the window just gone, with a turnover of over 40 players (incoming and outgoings).
However, Webber says that Norwich fans should expect much less business in January, as he does not like to make too many changes mid-season.
Speaking to The Pink’Un, Webber said this:
Now we have a strong scouting department in place that when we do hit the next windows – and I struggle to see January being particularly busy because I am not a big believer of doing much in January if the squad is settled and the spirit is right – but going into next summer and beyond I know 100pc that we’ll be in a much better place to attack those windows and prepare.
Pre-season was challenging. We had some high-profile things going on with Jonny and Graham (Dorrans) and staffing issues.
However this season pans out we will be so much better prepared for next summer. We are working on players now and dealing with agents and so on. That is the philosophy here moving forward, not, ‘The window opens in two days and what are we going to do lads?’
Norwich are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, conceding just two goals in that time.
Some of Norwich’s summer signings have been a big part of that, with Christoph Zimmermann, Angus Gunn and Tom Trybull particularly impressing.
Sean Raggett, signed in the summer from Lincoln, is set to return to the club in January from his loan spell.
