Eriksson: "I'm happy with my squad"

Sven Goran Eriksson has said he is happy with his business in this summer's transfer market and is to settle on the squad he has assembled.

Last season Eriksson was highly active in the loan market - he chose not to purchase in the January transfer window where fees are often inflated - but he is reluctant to introduce any new players now that he has assembled a squad of his choosing.

With David Nugent sidelined for up to five weeks with a torn hamstring, the Swede might have been tempted to bring in one final signing for a temporary spell at the King Power Stadium. However Eriksson rubbished those claims.

"I don't think we are going to do anything more," insisted the Foxes manager, "If something very, very good appears then maybe, but at this moment we are not looking at anything and I am very happy with my squad."

He also offered words of encouragement to Martyn Waghorn, who left Leicester yesterday to rejoin former manager Nigel Pearson at Hull City in a six-month loan deal.

"He wanted to play more football than he has done lately and we want him to play because we believe he is a good striker," said Eriksson, "Unfortunately, he has played too little here. But he is young and a big talent, and it will be good for him to be playing at Hull."

Waghorn capped the news of his loan move by scoring on his debut for England's under-21s in their 6-0 victory over Azerbaijan last night.
