Bruce said, “All the decisions to get a squad of 25 together is what it’s all about now.”

We have irons on the fire for two to three items, and all the work starts.

“Flo Lejeune has been away speaking with Spanish clubs where he was loaned last year, so there might be something.

I am certain there will be some movement. “The transfer market is extremely quiet and it will continue to remain that way. But it will heat up, I’m sure.”
