Villa chief executive Paul Faulkner says there could be more summer arrivals but has ruled out a deal for Nuremberg's Hiroshi Kiyotake.
Midfielder Kiyotake has been linked with a move to Villa Park and Faulkner has confirmed the club did make an enquiry for the Japan international but the 23-year-old will not be arriving before the transfer window closes.
"We did make an enquiry about the player, but only the sort of enquiry that we make about lots of players during a transfer window," Faulkner said in a club webchat.
On potential further signings, Faulkner admitted there was a chance more business could be done but he conceded it was the summer policy to get their main transfer activity done early.
He added: "There are still three weeks left in the window, so at this stage it's still a case of wait and see. Our plan was to do most of our business early in the summer."
Faulkner also revealed no talks are planned with boss Lambert about extending his contract, even though he only has just under two years left on his current deal.
He added: "It is something that we will look at when the time is right for everybody. We have a fantastic relationship with Paul and his backroom team and he has been great to work with from my point of view.
"I know that he loves being at Villa and we're looking forward to trying to really achieve something together over the coming years."
