Watford are unlikely to make any significant signings during the January transfer window, accoring to head coach Nigel Pearson.

Speaking ahead of this Sunday's trip to Bournemouth, the Hornets' boss admitted that the biggest additions to his squad are likely to come from players returning from injuries and that he does not foresee the club being too active during the window, if at all.

"Hopefully we’ll have some new signings by getting some of our injuries back which will be really important for us," he said.

"Bearing that in mind, I don’t think I want to be talking too much about speculating on other people’s players and if we did no business at all, then I still think we’ve got the capability and enough tools here already to get out of the situation that we’re in. But time will tell, I’ve never been one for discussing too much in the public domain, I don’t like to talk about other people’s players and certainly I do think that we’ve got good players here already so if we do business it’s not going to be substantial for sure."

One Watford player whose future has been brought into question is Roberto Pereyra after the Argentina international told Fox Sports Argentina he wanted "a change of scenery" at the end of the season.

However, Pearson said he was not going to jump to conclusions regarding Pereyra's comments and instead said he was more interested in seeing if the player shows desire on the training ground.

"He’s a very interesting character and I will just judge Roberto as I will every player based on what I see when we’re training and playing," said Pearson.

"I don’t know, if he did say that, what context it was in. I think it’s important not to make assumptions on that and it’s more about whether players show the desire to play for us at any given time, it’s as simple as that really."
