Loan Moves Unlikely

Loan Moves Unlikely

Simon Grayson had hinted previously that he could move into the loan market, however he seems set to resist this temptation.

The Preston boss continues to watch games and cast his eye over players, with moves to bring them in possible if needed but utilising what he has is something that's always been his priority: 'The situation is still pretty much as it was. We're watching a lot of games at the moment to see what is out there.

'This week we've had people watching reserve and club Under-21s games. I don't think we'll be in for anyone unless we are hit with injuries or suspensions.

'If that was to happen we've got people who could come in but I've said from the day I came in that everyone in the squad would be given their chance to show us what they're about.'

The loan window closes next week but in order to "save money" Grayson would continue to keep operating as he has for now, adding: 'Whether that is in training, in reserve games or the first team, I`m having a good look at everyone here.

'If we can keep picking up points with the squad we've got, it would be a waste of money to start bringing loan signings in.'

Seems a sensible move really, with eight points taken from fifteen available under his leadership so far it's working so getting the best out of players he currently has available to him is the way to go.

Grayson is probably looking at the clubs youngsters too, and he could look to bring them into the first-team picture too before the season is out perhaps?
