Blues boss Lee Clark says he is hopeful there will be a 'lot more movement' in terms of adding players to his squad.

Clark has already managed to bring three new players in, with Stephen Gleeson the latest recruit to sign up yesterday.

"We’ve hit the ground running and I thank everybody behind the scenes for working so hard," said Clark. “With the paperwork and medicals and all that, there has been a lot of work put into the first three deals and I’m hoping the momentum doesn’t stop there and that there is a lot more movement.

"We’re obviously really short in terms of the numbers of players in the senior squad so we have to move quickly. In the market we’re in with no transfer fees there is no point in us waiting around and seeing if anything else drops.” 

Clark says that Blues are still regarded as a very appealing prospect by players, despite the club's flirt with relegation last season.  

"The club doesn't need much talking about because people from afar still see that we’re still a very attractive club to come and play for because of the history of the club and the support that it gets.

"I just do the good bit by meeting the players and the agent and telling them my plans. I'm hopeful that with more additions, the squad can continue to take shape."

Meanwhile, Clark admits that it’s increasingly likely that Nikola Zigic and Chris Burke will not be extending their stay at the club into a fifth and fourth season respectively.

He added: “It is looking unlikely that Chris and Nikola will sign new contracts, so I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both players for their efforts.

“As crowd favourites, there’s no doubt that both players will go down in the club’s history and we wish them well for the next stages in their career.”
