David Moyes has said that the arrival of Juan Mata at Manchester United is just the first of many signings to come at Old Trafford.

The 25-year-old Spaniard signed from Chelsea in the ongoing transfer window for a club-record transfer fee of £37.1m. Mata successfully completed his medical after arriving by helicopter at the AON training complex on Saturday.

The former Everton manager's United team has struggled this season after a poor summer transfer window. However, Mata's signing could be the boost the team needs.

"What I will say is that this is the first of many more to come in time. I'm looking forward to Juan being the start of it. I want to win and give the supporters something to shout about because I've not done that often enough," Moyes told United's official website.

"I want to build an exciting team. That's always the way I've wanted my football to be played and I've not known it any other way," he added.

The United manager was in attendance at Borussia-Park for Borussia Monchengladbach's 0-2 defeat to Bayern Munich. Reports claim that Moyes is preparing a £25m move for Bayern's Toni Kroos in January, and is watching Moenchengladbach midfielder Patrick Herrmann.

Moyes said that no more new faces are likely to join the English champions in January, but has not ruled out signings in the final week of the window.

"I don't think we'll have any more in January. I'm still working on it and looking to do things - we know exactly what we'd like to do and if it changes in the last week, which sometimes it can do, then we'll try. I hope it will be the first of some new signings that will arrive, but more likely in the summer," Moyes concluded.

United face Cardiff City in the league on Tuesday and Mata could make his debut for the English champions against the Welsh club.
