BUSY Giants coach Jon Sharp is believed to be closing in on a new signing to strengthen his Super League squad.
The McAlpine chief has been forced to operate with a 24-man squad, which will be tested to the full as the Giants look to maintain their top-six challenge.
But a new man could help maintain the winning momentum and provide extra cover for the long end-of-season run-in.
Huddersfield are not prepared to reveal any details about the player they have in their sights.
But with Sharp having already shown he has a good recruitment eye, any new arrival would clearly have the potential to make a positive impression.
All five of his closed season signings - Stuart Donlan, Stuart Jones, Chris Nero, Sean Penkywicz and Paul Smith - have made a telling impact this season.
Unfortunately, Smith has been sidelined for several weeks after undergoing surgery on a broken nose, while hooker Darren Turner is still out following minor knee surgery.
And it's noticeable that even with these two sidelined, Sharp's squad has been stretched to the limit, which is something that concerns the coach.
