Morecambe boss Jim Bentley says he is hoping to secure more signings to boost his squad this week.

Having brought in Cardiff City’s utility player Paul McKay on loan until the end of the season, the Shrimps’ manager is looking to tie up at least one more arrival sooner rather than later.

A deal has been agreed to bring in an experienced striker but the boss has several targets that he is hoping to bring in sooner rather than later.

Bentley said: “I’ll always try my best for the club and I’ve never been as busy as I have been over the last three or four weeks.

“Now we’re into January, we’ve made one signing, we have decisions to make over others and we will certainly be looking to bring one or two in.

“We have verbally agreed one who could be in soon.

“You’ve got to look at the squad; we’re in a difficult position, we haven’t scored enough goals, conceded too many goals and had unbelievably bad luck in the middle of the park.”

Defensive reinforcements are on the shopping list following the departure of Josef Yarney.

The defender will be returning to his parent club, Newcastle United, following the conclusion of his six-month loan period.

“There will be some changes; Jo (Yarney) will go back and we will try to replace him.

“Sam Lavelle probably needs another experienced one alongside him; Jo has been fantastic but we need a little bit more experience and some cover.''
