Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has ruled out the prospect of any more new players arriving at Anfield this month.
The former Valencia coach has snapped up central defender Martin Skrtel in January, but is happy with his squad as the Reds attempt to put their off-field problems behind them and clinch a top-four finish.
He said after Monday's 2-2 draw with Aston Villa: "I'm not looking at more players. We signed the centre-back we needed and will keep going with the players we have."
Of the result, Liverpool's fourth successive draw in the Premier League, Benitez added: "It was difficult to explain.
"After half-time we had a lot of chances but couldn't score the second goal, and in just three minutes, two long free-kicks, we conceded.
"We were attacking, controlling, you could see they were not creating anything.
"At the end we scored another goal but I think we deserved to win first and not be under pressure."
