Slaven Bilic has given his transfer market thinking ahead of what promises to be an intriguing summer.
And despite the urgency which some believe surrounds new arrivals, the new manager is refusing to get involved in frenzied thinking or activity.
Speaking to the official website Bilic said: “We will not rush just for the sake of buying. We have to be very, very clever with that. We can’t afford to buy players just for the sake of buying.
“But we’re going to try and be active, but only if those players are better than the ones we already have.”
Pedro Obiang has already arrived along with back-up keeper Darren Randolph on a free transfer from Birmingham and youngster Martin Samuelson from Manchester City.
The club – as is always the case – have been linked with numerous target seem focused on acquisitions to beef up a midfield area that lacks pace and creativity with the likes of captain Kevin Nolan expected to move on after four years of great service.
