David Wagner says the closure of the English Football League’s two emergency loan windows is of no concern to him.
From now on, transfer business will be limited to two spells , in the summer and again in January.
FIFA have never been happy with the loophole in England which allowed Football League clubs to set up temporary deals pretty much throughout the season.
They said the emergency loan windows “affected the sporting integrity of the competitions” and tried to ban them last season.
Now they have gone, but German head coach Wagner said: “To be honest, I am not worried.
“At Borussia Dortmund I worked with only the two windows, so when I came to England last November and could make a loan signing, it was different for me.
“Losing the emergency windows really isn’t a problem - I can handle it.”
As a rule, Wagner prefers permanent signings, and 10 of his 14 summer recruits (including Under 21 keepers Luke Coddington and George Dorrington) have come that way.
Liverpool keeper Danny Ward, Manchester City and Australian international midfielder Aaron Mooy, Chelsea forward Kasey Palmer and FC Ingolstadt striker Elias Kachunga have come in on loan, and in the latter case, Town have an option to make the signing permanent.
Jordy Hiwula has been loaned out to Bradford City and William Boyle and Flo Bojaj to Kilmarnock.
Wagner explained: “I like long-term contracts, because we are building something for the future.
“But we will use loans, both in and out of the club.
“There are some players we can’t get permanently for a variety of reasons, so we have used loans.”
Wagner has 25 senior players at his disposal, including keeper Joe Murphy, who is recovering from shoulder surgery.
“We don’t want a squad too big, but it is important to have competition for each position,” he said.
“You must always be able to react to injury, suspension or loss of form.
“These things can always happen during a season.
“This is what we have tried to create, a squad with good balance and good competition.
“And it is good we got so many of them so early in the summer.
“Then they can get the maximum information together. This is important.”
