Teddy Sheringham says Stevenage could do more business before the transfer window shuts.
The Stevenage boss has until 11pm on Monday, February 1 to bring in, or let go, of players on permanent deals, and have made an enquiry for Southend United defender Luke Prosser.
And although Sheringham would not be drawn specifically on whether any deal for Prosser may happen, he did say that there could be more ins and outs at the club in the coming 10 days.
He has already brought in Aaron O’Connor and Keith Keane on loan from Forest Green Rovers and Cambridge United respectively, while Lee Cox (Plymouth Argyle) and Connor Ogilvie (Spurs) have signed loan extensions.
Boro have also given midfielder Michael Tonge an 18-month deal after his short-term contract came to an end earlier this week, and Sheringham says the club is still looking for the right players to strengthen the squad.
“The window’s still open. Things happen right until the last minute and we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open and looking around,” Sheringham said.
“I’m sure there will be people looking at our players as well. There might be one or two bits of movement.”
The Boro boss added: “We’ve enquired about a few different players.
“It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about players below us or above us. We’re interested in making Stevenage Football Club a better football team.
“We’re trying to get players in to make us better. Simple as that. If that means players in lower leagues so be it.
“If it’s players we can get in from higher leagues then just as well. As long as they fit into our way of thinking and what we’re looking for in the character of a player to come in and make us better I’ll be interested.”
