A centre half! Really, why?" It is all clear. It is all on the table. We work on that, you can imagine.

'But it is the situation. On top of that we have January and it is not the easiest transfer window. A supporter may look at it and think "they need a centre half and the other team has a good one so bring him in." My job is to really to make the players we have here as strong as possible.
