‘We have to work with the names that we have and we have to try and do our best in the conditions we are working in,’ said Benitez, whose side are two points above the relegation zone ahead of today’s visit of Swansea.
‘I thought that we could sign a player this week, but we couldn't do it. We have to think we will do something before January 31.
I have made it clear we need some help. We need to strengthen certain positions.
‘For me it is obvious, he (Ashley) knows he has to improve the team so that we have the quality which allows us to stay in Premier League.’ Meanwhile, Benitez has ruled out selling Jonjo Shelvey to relegation rivals West Ham.
‘We cannot sell players that are playing because we would have to replace them for better players and, in January, we would need a lot of money to convince players to come here, that is almost impossible,’ said Benitez.
‘I have heard people talking about our players, but we do not have any offers. We do not want to sell anyone who will add value to the team and we cannot loan out players if we do not have options to replace them.’
And when asked if Ashley had told him what his budget would be, Benitez said: ‘No, we are still working.’
Newcastle have a deal in place to sign Chelsea winger Kenedy on loan but are waiting for the green light from Stamford Bridge for the move to go through.
