Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier says the club will only make signings in January if players leave the Ligue 1 leaders.

PSG needed a stoppage-time penalty from Kylian Mbappe to seal a nervy 2-1 win over Strasbourg in their first game after the World Cup on Wednesday.

That ensured they will end the year seven points clear at the Ligue 1 summit, and Galtier does not envisage the club dipping into the transfer market when the window opens on Sunday.

“I am very happy and very satisfied with the squad I have,” he said ahead of his side’s visit to Lens on New Year’s Day.

“There will be no arrivals if there are no departures. There are no players who have asked to move. It means that the players are good here.

“It’s a long period, we have to see how things evolve.

“A defender is not needed. We have El Chadaille Bitshiabu, who played against Strasbourg. He has enormous potential. We place a lot of hope in him.

“Going for a defender would be blocking space for him. We want to promote our local talents.”
