Boss says he would 'add one or two more' to improve team

Steve Davis is convinced that the loan successes of Lauri Dalle Valle, Brad Inman and Chuks Aneke continues to see Premier League clubs eager to let their players join us on short-term deals. Davis added the loan capture of Manchester City’s Under-21 captain George Evans to that impressive list on Monday with the England youth international expected to make his senior debut against Bradford City this weekend.

Evans, 18, has joined on a three-month loan deal taking him through to early February and the boss has already stated that if one or two Premier League youngsters become available then he wouldn’t rule out adding more players to his squad.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I have spoken to many people at many clubs about who is available and how much they would cost us. Most clubs in our position still have to make a contribution towards the wages, depending on which club you are dealing with. 

“There can be stumbling blocks but we have more chance of signing those young and hungry players from Premier League development squads than say the more experienced players in the Championship or League One who are on too much money or are not prepared to drop down. It depends on the character of the player.

“That's the reality, it is very hard to get experienced players from even League Two clubs and don’t forget they can't get in their own teams. Are they any better than young ambitious players? There is always a risk, it just happens the younger ambitious, talented, ones have been more successful for us.

Steve added: “If we can find one or two more who would improve us then we do it. It is an option for us and it is on-going.”
