Director of football Damien Comolli has moved to rein in expectation by suggesting there will be no major signings at Liverpool this summer.

Liverpool bagged their first piece of silverware since 2006 when winning the Carling Cup on Sunday, after which it was suggested the victory would be a springboard to more glory.

The Reds invested heavily over the past 12 months - the signings of the likes of Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing took their spending over £100m - and they have been tipped to be major players in the summer transfer window, but Comolli does not believe that will be the case.

"It is early days. We will probably make some adjustments in the summer but nothing that we've done before," he said, which is in contrast to what he said following the win at Wembley when he claimed "big players" are queueing up to join Liverpool.

"We signed nine players since Kenny came back so there will be a few adjustments but nothing massive.

"We have done the hard work and now it is a question of making some adjustments in certain positions.

"Kenny has said it several times that we have a very competitive squad and all positions are covered by two or three players, quality players, and we have a lot of young players coming through as well."
