David Artell has told crewealex.net that he is ‘calm and relaxed’ about his summer planning after reassuring youngsters, James Jones, Callum Ainley and Charlie Kirk to re-sign for the club, as well as adding Paul Green and Shaun Miller on permanent contracts.
The Alex staff are working tirelessly behind the scenes to strength the full-back department to free up the possible versatility of Perry Ng and Harry Pickering to operate in different positions if needs be.
Artell would like to bolster his options with a right and left back and says that the deals will be done in readiness for Morecambe on 4th August.
Artell told us: “I am happy with what we have been able to do so far, but there is always room for improvement. I could do with Ronaldo or Harry Kane if their available, but in all seriousness we would be okay if the season kicked off tomorrow.
The boss added: “I would like to bring in a couple more. There is a bit of business to be done yet and it will get done, but at this moment in time I am comfortable with it. We still have time on our side and we will continue to follow up what we have already started.”
