MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is urgently looking to bring in players during the January transfer window in the wake of his team's disappointing first half of the season.

United is seventh in the Premier League after 20 games, 11 points behind leader Arsenal, and was eliminated by Swansea in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

Moyes says ''there is an urgency that we would like to bring people in, but are those players available in January?''

Moyes' only signing in the offseason was Marouane Fellaini from former club Everton for 27.5 million pounds ($43 million).
