Cape Town - Liverpool will not be active in the transfer window if Brendan Rodgers latest statement is to be believed.
"It will be quiet for us in January," said Rodgers, whose side are four points below the Champions League places.
"We obviously did a lot of business in the summer, but if we think there's something that can really improve our team, then we'll look to do that."
Rodgers then revealed his decision to allow Raheem Sterling some time off from first team duty.
"It was something planned in the summer," Rodgers explained.
"In two and a half years Raheem has gone from the youth team to a regular in the first team and an international, and we've asked a lot of him.
"He's played a lot for me, over 100 games, and I just felt this would be a good period for him to have a rest, miss our FA Cup tie (a 2-1 win at AFC Wimbledon) and miss this game and then come back refreshed."
Liverpool snuck past Sunderland 1-0 on Saturday but probably should have won by a much greater margin than that provided by Lazar Markovic's goal - his first in league football since a £20 million move from Benfica.
The impressive Serbian, who also hit the bar, was one of several high-profile arrivals before the start of the season, meaning Rodgers expects a low-key January when it comes to further Anfield arrivals.
