'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Signings 'Quick' ... But Not Now

For those waiting for some transfer action, Glenn Roeder insists he will make 'five or six' signings before the season starts.

No new arrivals this week, and perhaps even until the end of the World Cup, be he has stressed the need to strengthen quickly.

Roeder: 'We need to add to the squad. We've already lost one or two players - sadly Alan Shearer has retired, Lee Bowyer (pictured) has gone to West Ham and Michael Chopra, who was a good squad player, has gone to Cardiff.

'That's three players down straight away and it wasn't a big squad in the first place.

'The chairman and I need to be busy signing quite few players to bring us up to the number we need to have a good season. We won't be signing anybody this week but we are talking to players at the moment.

'Hopefully by the time the Intertoto comes around in July we'll have one or two more new faces. Maybe there will be five or six in total before the new season. It's important for the players we have that they see us bringing in new faces over the coming weeks.'.

Could be that they are waiting for the world cup to end to find out the sort of money that players will be costing. Still, it's never a bad thing to see that they are taking their time and not just jumping in.
