HUDDERSFIELD Town boss Lee Clark has stressed he's looking to trim his squad rather than add to it as the closure of the summer transfer window approaches.

As preparations for the League I Galpharm meeting with Wycombe Wanderers get under way with a fully-fit squad, the manager explained his strategy on playing staff before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month.

Town have recruited eight new players since the end of last season while Tom Clarke, Joey Gudjonsson and Robbie Simpson are available for transfer following the loans out of Nathan Clarke, Chris Atkinson and Jamie Spencer.

Clark said: "I am always actively looking at players for the future, but I am not actively sending out scouts to look for us doing anything in the coming days or before the window closes.

"I am not expecting us to do anything permanent before the window shuts because the focus is on trimming the squad.

"I have already done the business I wanted to do and I'm very happy with that, so we go from here."

With Oldham Athletic the latest club rumoured to be interested in Simpson, Clark added: "There have been lots of inquiries for one or two individuals, but the modern-day footballer doesn't seem to want to go and play.

"We've never had anything from Oldham, but lots of other clubs have inquired (about Simpson) and he has turned them down."
