Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says he is still keen to conclude some transfer business before the window closes at 11pm on Friday.
Artell has already signed Michael Nottingham on loan from Blackpool thus freeing up the chance for fellow defender, Christian Mbulu, to sign for Morecambe.
The Alex boss is determined to bring in another few face by the close of the window. He told the club’s official website: “Hopefully we can bring another one in before Friday’s deadline.
“If there is ever a chance to improve us then we will look to take it and we may have that chance to do it. We have targeted one or two and we feel we are close, so we will see if we can do it.
“It is more likely to be a loan. Like I’ve said we are close but we are not sure how close.”
