Broadcast journalists will not be required to provide any more deadline day updates from outside Old Trafford, with Manchester United boss David Moyes shutting up shop.

Moyes splurged a club-record £37.1m to bring Juan Mata from Chelsea recently, but also saw Wilfried Zaha and Fabio da Silva leave on loan for Cardiff City.

While Moyes is expecting a few more exits, the Premier League champions have confirmed their incoming business for the winter is at an end.

The indication is a slight contrast from when Moyes promised more Mata-like signings during the Spaniard's presentation earlier this month.


However, Moyes told a press conference relayed by Manchester United's official outlets: "There's no disappointment [that there will be no more transfers].

"We have a few young players who'll go on loan before the window closes. We hope they get experience and become better for it.

"[But] I said at the start that we wouldn’t do much business in January. There's no one reason for that.

"You can stand down your TV cameras at the gates. I don't think they'll be required. We've done our business."
