Paul Hartley will target the loan market in a bid to strengthen his Cove Rangers squad before the transfer deadline.
The Cove manager still has two loans available to him to use this season, as he looks to add to the three winter signings he has already made.
Hartley has two loan players currently, in Dundee’s Josh Mulligan and John Robertson from St Johnstone, with gaps freed up by Declan Glass, Chris Antoniazzi and Matty Smith returning to their parent clubs.
Tom Leighton, Mulligan and Rory McAllister have all been added to bolster Cove’s ranks and Hartley would like to bring in at least one more body.
He said: “We’ve got two loans we can still use. It might not be possible to use them, it just depends on who is available. They have got to come into a good group of players and fit in with how we play.
“I’ve got an eye on one or two players. If we get them, great. If not, then we’ll go with the squad we’ve got until the end of the season. It would be silly not to try use them – it just depends on the right players becoming available.”
Cove are also in talks with a number of players over contract extensions, having extended deals for Fraser Fyvie and Harry Milne already this season. The signing of McAllister, Hartley hopes, will give the rest of his squad a lift for the months ahead.
He added: “It’s a good bonus for the players and should help.
“We’ve brought in someone who’s scored a lot of goals over the last 10 years.
“He’s fitted in so well and obviously knows some of the players.”
