Antonio Conte remained coy when asked about Chelsea’s remaining plans for the January transfer window.

The Blues completed their first signing of the mid-season window on Friday when they completed a deal to land midfielder Ross Barkley from Everton.

Barkley signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea after the Blues agreed to pay a fee of around £15m to land him from Everton.

However, the west London side are bound to be linked with a host of other players in the coming days and weeks as Conte considers further bolstering his squad at Stamford Bridge this month.

Chelsea are currently in third place in the Premier League table and have the small matter of a crunch clash against Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League next month.

However, Conte was in no mood to give anything away when quizzed about Chelsea’s remaining plans for the transfer window after the 0-0 FA Cup third round draw with Norwich on Saturday night.

Asked if there will be any more signings at Chelsea in January, Conte told BT Sport: “As I said before, I repeat, I prefer to face these topics with the club.”

Chelsea are currently preparing for the first leg of their League Cup semi-final clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
