Funds remain in short supply at Hillsborough and the club will not gamble on their future by spending what they do not have.

Jones is happy to tow that line and plan his January business accordingly.

Wednesday could do with a few fresh faces, with just three points separating them from the Championship drop zone.

They will, however, be scratching around for bargains, with Jones aware that he must generate his own transfer kitty by moving players out.

He said: "We have to be diligent and cut our cloth accordingly, and try to find the right ones who we think can do us the right job.

"I've got to move people out to move people in."
