Leeds United manager Brian McDermott admitted he has ‘no idea’ whether the club will complete any more summer signings before the transfer window closes on August 3.
McDermott, 52, is becoming increasingly resigned to settling with his current squad as he continues to be ruled by financial constraints at Elland Road.
The former Reading boss has made three summer signings so far with Luke Murphy arrival from Crewe Alexandra for an estimated £1million, whilst also signing Noel Hunt and Matt Smith on free transfers.
But the club has reached deadlock over a fourth signing, a player that he described as “key” to his plans.
“I’ve got no idea, there’s nothing to say on that at the moment.
“There’s no point in saying things and saying nothing because that’s all I’m doing. We’ve nothing to report,” he told the Yorkshire Post when asked if any new faces would arrive before their season opener against Brighton.
He continued to say: “I’m happy to work with the players we’ve got because that’s what I’ve got.
“There’s no point in saying things about players I don’t have. I’ve never done that in the past and I wont do it here.
“We’ll work with the players we’ve got, do our best and see where we end up at the end of August,” he added.
Leeds begin their season with a home game against Brighton this weekend.
