The Scot is beginning to seem desperate in the transfer window.
New Manchester United manager David Moyes has become the second high profile boss after Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger to insist signings will be made.
Both clubs have only made one signing apiece in the transfer window in the shape of youngsters Guillermo Varela for United and Yaya Sanogo at the Gunners.
Wenger has insisted that new faces will be brought in at the Emirates Stadium and Moyes has now followed suit by doing the same.
“I’m confident we will have players in,” the Scot told Sky Sports News.
“We are involved in several players we are looking at and that will continue. Will we get them before the deadline? I hope so, but we are working very hard to do so.
“This was always going to be a difficult window for me personally because I joined Manchester United on 1 July so it is giving you a short period to get to know the players and to get to know the market.”
The 50-year-old faces a tough task this season after taking over from legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
United are desperately trying to bring in a marquee signing for Moyes to help the transition, but so far two bids for Cesc Fabregas have been rejected by Barcelona and no new talent has been acquired.
Midfield is certainly an area where the Premier League champions need to improve, following the retirement of Paul Scholes and the continued absence of Darren Fletcher.
