BOSS Simon Grayson says Huddersfield Town will wait for the right time to make any moves for loan targets.
And if someone was to arrive this week, they will be signed much nearer to Saturday’s John Smith’s Stadium clash against Derby County rather than now – so that Town can maximise the loan.
“You are limited to 93 days, so even if we did do something before the weekend there would be no point wasting a few days,” said the manager, who has strikers Simon Church (Reading) and Jermaine Beckford (Leicester) on his radar.
“Getting the best out of the loan is what you are trying to do, working out the dates which suit everyone.
“There will be players available – maybe from Premiership clubs – who will give us options if necessary and if we are prepared to go down that avenue.”
Any signings made now can be for a maximum 93 days only – no season-long loans or permanent buys.
Town have money to spend following the £8m departure of Scotland’s Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn Rovers, but chairman Dean Hoyle insists a budget is in place and chief executive Nigel Clibbens says the club will not be held to ransom.
