Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter has revealed that he may not make any more new signings in the off-season as his side prepares for 2015/16.

Big name arrivals over recent months have been England second-row Geoff Parling and Australian flank Julian Salvi, both joining from Leicester.

The Chiefs have also added Glouucester lock Jonny Hill, with Exeter boss Baxter revealing that he feels under no pressure to bring in more players.

"If there's any more additions then it'll be one, possibly two, but at the same time I can see us signing nobody," coach Baxter told BBC Sport.

"We're not looking at our squads, feeling that we've got issues or problems, or weaknesses."

He added: "If the right player became available, we're in a position where potentially we could sign somebody.

"But we're being very selective and, if anything, we're probably the ones who are being very picky, saying no to a lot of guys, taking our time and assessing the players we think might well come.

"Some of them may well be during the season. It isn't like I'm desperate to get somebody for the start of pre-season next week because we have a glaring opening in the squad – that's not the case."
