Brentford boss Thomas Frank has not ruled out adding to his squad before the transfer window closes on Thursday but says he is “not desperate” for reinforcements.
Frank, who landed five new players in the summer, leads the Bees to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Tuesday night after a solid start to their second top-flight campaign.
“I’m happy with our squad, I think we’ve done a good business in this transfer window and I think we’re covered in every position,” Frank said.
“Maybe Phil (Giles, director of football) will have a little present for me, I don’t know. We’re in the market and we’re looking but we’re not desperate at all.”
Frank could be boosted by the return of defender Kristoffer Ajer for the short trip to Selhurst Park, after the Norwegian recovered from hamstring surgery at the end of the season.
But Frank is still without Ethan Pinnock (knee), Sergi Canos (hamstring) and Pontus Jansson (foot injury), while striker Halil Dervisoglu is potentially set to leave the club.
Dervisoglu has barely played under Frank this season having spent the last campaign on loan at Galatasaray, and has attracted interest from a number of other clubs.
“The big balance is having a strong team, but not too much,” added Frank. “It’s hard for them to see the minutes coming, so that’s the balance we have to find.
“It could be that Halil comes out, but it could also be that he stays. I think it’s all in the air. He could stay here or things can happen. But let’s see.
