He said: ‘There’s a couple of enquiries on one or two, but nothing imminent.

‘To get the right one, yes, but if we don’t get the right one we won’t do anything.

‘It’s not necessarily a situation where we’re waiting to improve but one needs to go out.

‘Each one is judged on their merits. I don’t see the point of letting players go unless we benefit from it.’
