SIMON GRAYSON says he will try to bolster Huddersfield Town’s squad during the transfer window – but won’t be panicked into signings in the wake of the 6-1 drubbing at Leicester.
The manager, who is also looking to move a number of players on, either on loan or in permanent moves, says experienced players are among his targets.
“We’re always keeping tabs on potential signings, and ideally, I’d like to bring a couple in, but they have to be the right deals,” explained Grayson, whose side are 17th in the Championship.
“We’re a generally young team, and of late I have questioned the decision-making on the pitch, and we are looking for people with that bit more experience and knowledge.
“I’m not a fan of the transfer window system, because I think it creates a stampede and inflates prices, but it’s the system we have and you have to deal with it.”
Grayson is working closely with chairman Dean Hoyle, chief executive Nigel Clibbens and Ross Wilson, Town’s head of football operations.
Wilson, a 30-year-old Scot who has held similar roles at Falkirk and Watford, deals with agents to help take the load off Grayson and allow him to focus on training-ground matters.
“I’ve had tremendous backing from the board ever since I arrived,” added Grayson, who was appointed last February and led Town to promotion in May.
