Derby County boss Billy Davies insists he is remaining calm and won't be forced into signing players in a hectic and inflated transfer market.
The Rams boss has made four signings since sealing promotion to the top-flight via the play-offs in May.
Robert Earnshaw, Tyrone Mears, Andy Todd and Claude Davis have all arrived at Pride Park, but Davies has vowed to bide his time and not be rushed into paying over the odds for more of his transfer targets.
"What is happening in the market place will not force us to make rash signings," he told the Derby Evening Telegraph.
"We have to be patient. We have to stay calm and we have to spend our money wisely.
"Anyone can spend money. It's how you spend it that counts."
Meanwhile, the Rams boss has confirmed that he expects some fringe members of his squad - including goalkeeper Lee Camp - to leave before the start of the new season.
"There is interest from clubs in some of our players," he added.
