Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle remains hopeful of being able to draft in two or three new players before the transfer window shuts at the end of August.
Coyle has so far brought in Robbie Blake, Martin Petrov and Marcos Alonso since the end of last season and is aware that his squad requires several more new faces.
He told the Bolton News: “I’m always looking to improve and I’m not finished yet.
“It’s easy to say there will be two or three new signings, but what I can say is that I’ll look to add a couple more before the end of the month.
“You can never say definitively that it will happen, because, as you saw with the Marcos Alonso deal, it can be quite complex.
“We’ll do our utmost to improve the squad by the start of the season and if not, certainly the close of the window.”
