Hull Chief Duffen: No January Signings Our Squad Has A Wonderful Balance

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has revealed that the Yorkshire side will not be making any moves in the January transfer window, with the Tigers chief claiming that the squad at the KC Stadium has a “wonderful balance.”

The Premier League debutantes have been the surprise package of the Premiership season so far, with Phil Brown’s side flying high in 3rd spot in the league table and on cloud nine after back-to-back wins over North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

However, despite the Tigers success, Duffen insists that they will not bring in new players just for the sake of it and will assess the situation with the Squad at the KC, when the time comes.

“I don't see why when January comes around people assume you have to look to strengthen your squad,” Duffen told the Mail.

“I don't believe we have to look to bring in players just because the laws of the game dictate that is when the window opens.

“I believe a major element of our success is because we have a good mix of players. In the side that played at Tottenham and Arsenal we had five lads who have been with the club for a long time.

“Two players had been with us for three years and three had been with the club five years.

“They have blended excellently with the new signings of international quality players and I think as a squad we now have wonderful balance.”
