Slaven Bilic insists West Ham will not panic buy in January despite their difficult start to the season.

The Hammers are languishing in 17th place in the Premier League after winning just three of their opening 11 matches.

The picture could look even more bleak after their next four fixtures, which start at unbeaten Tottenham on Saturday before clashes with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

West Ham boss Bilic knows they need to climb away from trouble quickly, but he is confident he already has the answers to their problems at his disposal.

"I definitely think, and I know, we have solutions in the squad," he said.

"We have some players who were absent for a long time. Now they are coming back and they are going be our new signings so we are not thinking about the transfer window solving all our problems.

"Of course every club will look at one or two players, but not on that scale. The transfer window is far away, we are talking about football, I am completely concentrated on the players we have, and the players who will come back."

One of those returning players is forgotten striker Diafra Sakho, who will be in the squad at White Hart Lane for the first time this season.
