Chris Hughton: “We were mostly looking at loans.
“It was a consideration (to pay a transfer fee) but there was not really anyone that came in our price bracket to be honest. That was frustrating but we didn’t feel that we needed to add to much to the squad, to be honest.
"We’re very close to having the squad that I want and we have some very good young players who I will not be afraid of giving a chance.
“We know that we have to add but the most important thing was that they were the right players so as not to upset the balance we have at the moment.”
