The Canaries boss doesn't anticipate being busy in the market, labelling the month a bad time to do business, and would only consider making a move for a player at the right price
The Canaries have been linked with a host of players – from Swansea striker Danny Graham to Celtic's Beram Kayal – but Hughton does not anticipate too many changes in January.
"I don't expect to be busy," Hughton told the Eastern Daily Press.
"We are, as most clubs will try to do, looking to strengthen the squad. If there are players there we will endeavour to do that, but I don't envisage massive changes."
Hughton revealed that the inflated prices of players in January makes business difficult, with value for money hard to find.
"It is difficult because it is not a good time to bring in players," the Norwich boss continued. "Last January we brought in a couple, but we will continue to try working.
"January is notoriously not a great time to bring in players. You have to make sure they are the right players at the right price and value which is why at this moment not a lot of business has been done.
"We are doing as much work as we can, not just these weeks during January, but the months leading into this period.
"If it is right and appropriate to do some business then we will do."
