The Portuguese manager has been busy in the close-season, bringing in Brazil international midfielder Paulinho, Frenchman Etienne Capoue and Belgian winger Nacer Chadli, as well as striker Roberto Soldado for a club-record €30 million (£25.6m).

Villas-Boas is reportedly interested in bolstering his squad further with another defender ahead of the September 2 deadline, especially after Danny Rose had to be replaced in their 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday due to a thigh problem, while the possibility remains of a £100m windfall with which he may have to replace Real Madrid target Gareth Bale.

However, the 35-year-old kept his cards close to his chest when asked about his plans after the match at Selhurst Park.

"We have options in defence," he argued. "We still have [Kyle] Naughton, we have [Younes] Kaboul coming back, we have Zeki Fryers, who did very well in pre-season.

"I think we are covered. We might [buy] we haven't decided yet, bearing in mind Fryers's progression."
