Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has made it clear the Bundesliga side has no intention of adding to its ranks in the January transfer window.

Dortmund has been plagued by injury in the opening stages of the campaign, with Erik Durm, Neven Subotic and Marco Reus still on the sidelines.

But Zorc is confident the team has the depth to compete for major honours once its injured players return.

"I do not see the necessity to make any winter transfers," Zorc told Sport Bild.

"Our injured players are slowly returning, one by one. The situation will improve once all the injured players are back."

Dortmund brought in a number of new players ahead of the season, with Mario Gotze, Andre Schurrle, Ousmane Dembele, Marc Bartra, Raphael Guerreiro, Sebastian Rode, Emre Mor and Mikel Merino all moving to Signal Iduna Park during the close-season.

Thomas Tuchel's men sit sixth in the Bundesliga table with 15 points from nine games, trailing leader Bayern Munich by eight points.
