The Norwegian head coach insists he’s happy with the players at his disposal and says the club will consult him over any transfer targets.

During his interview, Solskjaer said: ‘The club’s probably had a plan. You don’t just plan the next day and next month, I’m sure they’ve got plans, but this transfer window has probably been planned since the summer and the year before.

‘The structure is phenomenal, so I’m sure they’ve got their targets, I’m here to voice my opinion on that and I’m sure we’ll sit down, me and Ed, if they’ve got anything in the pipeline.

‘I’m here to work with the ones I’ve got, they’ve all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that’s my job to improve players and individuals.’
