Market moves

21 January 2013

Appleton is looking to add to the squad this January.

Rovers boss Michael Appleton expects to be busy towards the end of the January transfer window as he looks to freshen up the playing squad.

Appleton has admitted that he would like to bring in further additions between now and January 31st in a bid to breathe new life into the promotion campaign.

"I'd like to bring in three or four new faces just to freshen everything up before the window shuts," said the Ewood boss.

"I'm sure that will give everyone at the football club, and the playing staff, a big lift.

"It might kick into gear one or two players who maybe are very comfortable at the minute and it might get them to think twice about what their needs are.

"You can get into a situation where people become comfortable and when people become comfortable that is when it becomes very dangerous."

Appleton might look to take advantage of the loan market but also isn't averse to making permanent signings although he admits that January is never an ideal time to buy.

"If we are clever enough and do it right then there's certainly a possibility of permanent signings," added Appleton. "I think doing permanent signings in January is something you have to be really really careful with. You've to make sure you've done your homework .

"It is a little bit different than in the close-season where you can do a lot more homework on players and what they're about."
