Gary Johnson: Will look at what is available in the loan market

The window of opportunity may have shut for Premier League sides, but those outside of the top flight can still draft players in on short-term deals.

Johnson insists he is not looking for anything in particular, with Yeovil having worked hard to shape a competitive squad on the back of promotion into the Championship.

He is, however, ruling nothing out, with it possible that further moves will be made if the right players become available.

Johnson told the Western Gazette: "It will depend on who becomes available and whether it's the right time. I can only have a certain sized squad so if one of our key players becomes suspended or injured, I've got to make sure that I can fall back on the emergency loan system.

"The Premier League boys have to get their loans done in the windows because they're not allowed to do anything outside of the windows. That's why most of the business is with the Premier League boys.

"With us, seven days after the window shuts and after the international break, we can start loaning again. Generally an emergency loan can last three months, and that nearly takes us up to the next transfer window anyway.

"None of the Football League clubs really missed out by not doing anything now because in a week's time we can start emergency loaning again, and that's why there isn't really any panic."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
