Daniel Farke will not demand a late transfer plunge to shore up Norwich City's shaky start to the Championship.
Farke insisted prior to the 4-0 pummelling at Millwall he was happy with his squad, ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, and the scale of the mauling at the Den will not prompt an urgent re-think.
Canaries' sporting director Stuart Webber has already made it clear City have completed the bulk of their transfer business after a hectic summer that has seen more than 30 players come and go at Carrow Road.
But the Canaries continue to be touted with reinforcements at centre half, despite letting Sean Raggett return to Lincoln City on loan until the New Year and bringing in Marcel Franke and Christoph Zimmermann.
Bristol City's Aden Flint is the latest linked with a potential late transfer window move, following the club's previous interest in Premier League youngsters Jake Salter-Clarke and Krystian Bielik, to bolster a backline which has conceded the most goals in the second tier.
'Listen, in general, as a coach you always cry for more quality, more players,' said Farke.

'I have mentioned several times I will not sit here and complain about the situation or demand more players.
'That is not the situation at all. I will work with the players I have and it is up to me to improve the defensive behaviour and how to defend better with the guys I have.

'If there are new players then of course as a coach you always welcome that to have that quality but if not then it is up to me to improve the players.'
Farke's immediate priority is working with those under his command who have stayed behind in Norfolk during the current international break.
'It will give us a chance to do some work but it is not so easy with seven players away,' he said.
'The Millwall result gives us a lot of pressure.
'We know the situation in the table so it is important for us to get results but I don't think you can improve simply by focusing on the results.
'You have to look at the contents from each match and it is clear after the Millwall game.
'To be honest it was not so much the behaviour of the whole group but of the last row. It is not about just looking at the next game against Birmingham. It is much bigger.'
