Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness rules out January transfers

The 59-year-old believes the Bavarians have all the players they need in order to achieve success, and that new additions are unnecessary, despite slip in Bundesliga form
Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has suggested the German side will not be signing new players in January, explaining that die Roten already have enough class in their squad to reach their goals this season.

His statements come amid a slump of form from the club, who have lost three of their last five Bundesliga games, and on the heels of rumours that the Bavarians might be interested in signing Papiss Cisse from Freiburg.

"To get players to solve the problem is not a solution," Hoeness told Sky Sports News HD. "Those we have must play to their potential. And then we will have no need for new players."

However, Hoeness did not rule out the possibility of adding reinforcements during the summer.

"For us to think about it again at the end of the season is something else."

Bayern's loss to Mainz on Sunday left them third in the Bundesliga table, behind defending champions Borussia Dortmund, as well as Borussia Monchengladbach.
