Adams made his fifth signing of the transfer window on Wednesday in the shape of French striker Yoann Arquin from Notts County and he is working on a deal to bring in Oldham defender Cliff Byrne.

Adams said: "The only way that would happen is if a player wants more game time and he wants to go out on loan or move permanently. That will be up to the player, I won't be moving anybody out myself."

Arquin joined after a successful two-week trial and Adams is confident the 25-year-old can help supplement County's recent mini-revival.

"He can score goals and take the team up the park," Adams said. "He's got a good touch, he's good in the air.

"He's got good vision as well and that added to the strikers we have already got at the club, then he is hopefully going to do well for us."

Byrne, a 31-year-old Irishman who was on loan at former club Scunthorpe earlier this season, is also on trial at Victoria Park.

"We are still speaking to Oldham and Cliff so we are no further forward on that one," Adams added.

"It's a difficult situation. We're just waiting to see what the situation with Oldham is. The parameters have changed, so we'll wait and see."

County re-signed Greek defender Evangelos Oikonomou and have also acquired Jordan Slew, Michael Tidser and Filip Kiss on loan this month.

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
