ANDY Scott wants to bring in one more loan signing before the window closes on Thursday.
The Brentford boss also wants to ship up to three of his fringe players out on loan to accommodate his plans.
But he is in no hurry to extend the loans of recent signings John Bostock, Wojciech Szczesny and Pim Balkestein as he can still extend their month’s stays after Thursday.
Arsenal keeper Szczesny and Ipswich centre-back Balkestein both made their Bees debuts in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Walsall, with Lewis Price ill and Alan Bennett again on the bench.
Scott said: "Wojciech came in cool as a cucumber on Friday and was equally relaxed when I told him he’d be starting. He didn’t even know the names of his back four, but his awareness and dominance of the box was excellent.
"He came off the pitch saying he’d never kicked the ball so much in his life, and I said he’d better get used to it.
"Pim has been out with a groin injury and only trained for two days, so he wasn’t firing on all cylinders, but I think he did well after he found his feet.
"I’ll be speaking to their clubs this week to see if they can play in the FA Cup next week. I’m hopeful for John and Wojciech, but Pim is less likely as he’s close to the Ipswich first team."
Perhaps being primed for loan moves out after not even making the squad on Saturday were Sam Saunders and, perhaps more surprisingly, Carl Cort.
Scott added: "We’ve got a squad of 24 players, so there will be a lot of disappointed players, but as long as they take it the right way, they’ll still be in the reckoning."
