Fleetwood Town are open to the possibility of utilising the two remaining loan spaces they have in their squad.

Teams in the Football League can have a maximum of five players on loan in a match day squad and the League One side will explore their options before the transfer deadline on Monday, as per a report by Fleetwood Today.

Joey Barton’s side did their transfer busy early this summer and already have Lewie Coyle, Harry Souttar and Jordan Rossiter on loan from Leeds United, Stoke City and Rangers respectively.

They also delved into the transfer market to complete permanent transfers of Ched Evans, Josh Morris, Paul Coutts, Danny Andrew and Matt Gilks but are not planning to stop looking for more acquisitions just yet.

Barton has said, as per Fleetwood Today: “We have still got two loans, so you never know. There could be a couple of ins and outs, who knows? I’m aware of what the transfer deadline does because of the madness of January. You can’t ever rest on your laurels.”

We do not need major surgery. If we can shuffle in one or two spots, then maybe we will do that if it is about improving the team. I will be happy if the window closes and I’ve got what I have got.”

Fleetwood have won three out of their opening five games in the third tier and are hoping to carry on their decent start when they face Lincoln City away on Saturday.
