Steve Evans says the magic produced by Stevenage at Aston Villa could well have secured a few more signings.

The now famous 2-1 win in the FA Cup on Sunday was watched by two potential signings for the League Two club.

And the Boro boss said the performance and result, as well as a pre-game chat, has finished his part of the transfer talks.

He said: "There were a couple at Villa who we are working hard to get in. 

"I spoke to both lads privately on the morning of the game at the team hotel, away from our lads. 

"They went away and watched the game and as far as I’m concerned, from a football point of view, my talking is done. It’s over to Leon and the chairman now to make those deals happen.

"But they couldn’t have failed to be impressed."

As the ball is now out of his court though, he was unable to give any firm indication of when he expected dealings to be finalised.

And he also gave the merest hint that any new faces over the next week may not be the last.

"It could be today (Thursday) or tomorrow and it wouldn’t surprise me if it rolled into the beginning of next week," he said.

"We’re no different to every club. We like to do the bulk of it early but we have to be aware of what the market is saying in the last days of the window. 

"That maybe one player who pops up that was either not available to us or the level, but it is something we may want to take. 

"We’ll certainly strengthen before Leyton Orient, that’s for sure."

Boro have already signed Jake Forster-Caskey and Darryl Horgan so far in January with both in line for their debuts away to Harrogate Town on Saturday.
