Claudio Ranieri says he will not be rushing out to strengthen his Fulham squad and is focused on the players he has inherited. Fulham spent extravagantly last summer after winning promotion to the Premier League and chairman Shahid Khan has told Ranieri funds could be made available to recruit again in January.

First Ranieri wants to assess his options once his players return from international duty and only then will he know if he needs to bring reinforcements.
The Italian also said he does not have a record of re-signing players who have played under him previously, after it was suggested he could sign some of his Leicester title winners.
He said: “In my career never I bring back my old players. Now, for me, I love my players. I haven’t met them, because of the internationals, but already I love them and I want them to bring their best.
“After if there is something that I can say to the chairman, ‘I need another player, because I need these kind of players in the team’ is another thing. But now I have to work with these players.”
