Ipswich manager Roy Keane is confident of adding several loan signings to his squad before the visit of Burnley next weekend.
Keane saw Carlos Edwards, Gareth McAuley and Mark Kennedy pick up injuries in the 3-1 win at Middlesbrough on Saturday and is hopeful of bolstering his numbers soon.
He said: "We can't be held to ransom but there are one or two players we are trying to get over the finish line with."
He added: "I know it's frustrating when negotiations are going on between clubs and players but we are like any other club and we have to negotiate.
"If we can get one or two players in before Burnley at the weekend then fantastic - even if they are loan players."
