Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson revealed today that it is "very unlikely" he will sign new players before tomorrow night's transfer deadline.

But, speaking at a press conference today (Thursday) Robinson refused to rule out any Motherwell players being sold in this window.

"I can't dictate that," the Well gaffer said.

"I don't make anybody's offers. I'm not envisaging there will be but we're always a club that's open to offers.

"We did our business early on and I'm happy with what we've done.

"You see people signing near the deadline so everyone starts panicking and forgets that we signed players as well.

"So no, we're happy with what we've got. Obviously you always want something else, you always want more money to do something.

"But within our limitations and what we've got, we're happy with our squad."

Looking ahead to this Saturday's Scottish Premiership clash at bottom club Dundee, Robinson said that Carl McHugh should be fit after sustaining a wrist knock against Rangers on Sunday.

Midfielder Liam Grimshaw is available, as is Ryan Bowman who came through a reserve game this week unscathed.

But Charles Dunne and Craig Tanner remain out injured.
