“Things are progressing slowly at the minute, the financial climate has really staggered the market. I’m still trying to get in the people I want to get in.

“I’m not trying to push people out the door but some players understand that their opportunities to get in the first-team may be limited at the moment. But, everything from the Championship down below is quite slow right now. 

“We’ve still got a couple of weeks and I’m still expecting some different names on different pegs, but as of yet there’s not much to say.”
