New Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri has ruled out the prospect of raiding Leicester City in the January transfer window. Ranieri is back in the Premier League with the Cottagers after being handed the task of getting them out of relegation trouble between now and the end of the season.

Fulham spent extravagantly last summer when spending over £100million and their chairman Shahid Khan has told Ranieri funds could be made available to recruit again in January.
First Ranieri wants to assess his options. He 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.”
