PHIL PARKINSON insists players won't leave Wrexham until he has strengthened his squad during the January transfer window.

The Reds' boss is looking to complete new signings this month to give the promotion challenge a boost.

When asked about possible departures from The Racecourse, Parkinson made it clear that fresh bodies will have to added to the ranks before any players will be allowed to move on.

"I think everybody in football is just taking stock of the situation with the problems everybody is facing and we are the same," said Parkinson.

"We don't want to give anybody up until we have got players in.

"We need everybody around us because once we re-start again in league football, the games are going to come thick and fast and we need to be ready for that with plenty of options; both in the starting XI and from the bench."

Wrexham, still third in the table despite losing 3-1 at Notts County on Sunday, now take a three-week break from National League action.

This Saturday's home game will have to be rearranged because scheduled opponents Boreham Wood are on FA Cup duty while the Reds face Folkestone Invicta in the FA Trophy fourth round the following weekend.

The Reds' next league game is at Yeovil on Saturday January 22 and when asked whether new signings will be in place before that match, Parkinson added: "We will see.

"We have got a bit of thinking to do in the next couple of weeks."
