Gaffer on weekend plans

29 January 2016

It won't be a Saturday off for Nigel Adkins, despite the Blades not being in action at the weekend.


With the January transfer window poised to slam shut at 11pm on Monday evening, ​the Blades boss says the time between now and then will spent trying to reshape the playing squad, with the focus on adding quality to the ranks.


Looking ahead to potential a 'busy' weekend, Adkins remarked: "With no game on Saturday, the sole focus until the transfer deadline passes is recruitment and shaping the squad.


"There has already been a lot of work going on behind the scenes and hopefully we can get a couple of deals over the line between now and Monday evening.


"We are looking to be busy and active, both with ins and outs, but we'll have to wait and see.


"But as I keep emphasising, we are only looking for players who can come in and make a big difference in terms of quality, we aren't looking for numbers."​
