Dean Smith has predicted a quiet January transfer window with Brentford not actively on the hunt to bring in new faces.
The Bees boss is content with the squad he has and, unless an opportunity comes up that is too good to turn down, will not be making any forays this window.
And, given his feelings about the window, the head coach will be hoping the first month of 2018 flies by.
“I can't wait (for the January transfer window),” Smith said, overloading GetWestLondon's sarcasm detector in the process, before the Brentford head coach added seriously: “Unless somebody jumps out at us, we're comfortable with what we've got.
“We're always looking throughout the year. The recruitment department works very hard. Unless something jumps out at us, we've got a terrific squad here.”
Smith is hopeful that the club will not be selling any players this window, with the likes of Ollie Watkins, Ryan Woods and Nico Yennaris impressing so far this campaign.
He added: “It'd be nice to have a January advent calendar and all the players behind the doors as we close them.”
The head coach has also stayed out of contract discussions over the futures of Andreas Bjelland and Lasse Vibe, whose deals with the club expire at the end of the season.
He explained: “I've kept out of the talks with Lasse and Andreas. That's between them, the directors of football and their representatives. It's not my decision.”
