Leeds United will continue to c hase Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty ahead of the loan window re-opening next week.
The Canaries frontman was a major target for Steve Evans during the January transfer window but he failed to sign his man despite repeated attempts.
However, the club have kept their interest alive and now hope to secure the Northern Ireland international on a 93 day loan.
Moves for Frazier Campbell, Kike and Sam Winnall also fell through leaving Evans short of striking options.
Meanwhile Kike has left Middlesbrough to join Spanish outfit Eibar on a permanent deal.
The striker signed a two and a half year deal with Eibar after the arrivals of Jordan Rhodes and Enrique Sola on Teesside during the January window.
However, the paperwork wasn't processed in time, so he won't be able to play competitively until the start of the 2016/17 campaign.
Arsenal will come back in for former Huddersfield Town loanee Ben Chilwell and Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon when the window reopens in the summer.

Speaking of Leicester, star striker Jamie Vardy could be playing for Sheffield Wednesday by now according to reports.
Nigel Pearson reportedly agreed to a £5m deal to sell Vardy to the Owls six months' ago , but the club's owner Dejphon Chansiri decided against signing him - as he was unconvinced by his talent.
The 29-year-old, born in Sheffield, fancied a return to his hometown after falling out of favour with former boss Nigel Pearson.
Brentford Co-Director of Football Phil Giles has given an update on the future of Bees star Alan Judge.
Judge's impressive form this season led to a considerable amount of speculation during January and Brentford would like to tie him down - but only if the deal is right for them too.
Giles declared: "Alan's contract is the big one for his career. Given the way he's been playing and his age, he's got to get that right.
“If Brentford were to give him that contract it's got to be right for us economically. We'd love to keep him long-term and we'll have conversations to get something sorted.”
Marco Motta could still sign a deal with QPR , Italian reports claim.

Derby County boss Paul Clement has admitted o pposing teams are set up to frustrate his side, who haven't won in the league since Boxing Day .
Town's next opponents, Preston North End, were the visitors on Tuesday night and Clement claimed they had the most defensive approach of any team at the iPro Stadium this season.
He told the Derby Telegraph: "We have seen some defensive performances here this season but that is probably the most defensive team we have seen.
"Preston play 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 but it was more like a 5-4-1 and they sat deep right on the edge of the box.
"The only time they looked like they were going to get something against us was on a counter attack or from a set play. It was very challenging to break them down."
Current Championship table-toppers Hull City were outspent by league rivals during the January transfer window in a bid to reach the Premier League riches, but the Tigers remain confident they are well-placed in the race for promotion.
Boro were the big spenders of the final day, adding Jordan Rhodes, Ritchie de Laet and Julien de Sart, while Burnley spent £6m on James Tarkowski and Derby County added Nick Blackman earlier in the window.
However, Hull City vice chairman Ehab Allam said the club are happy with their business, bringing in back-up keeper Dusan Kuciak and signing Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell on loan.
He said: “People may point to other clubs around us spending a lot of money but that can, in my opinion, backfire. You can never be sure how bringing players into a club in January will affect a dressing room.
“The dressing room character and spirit is what has got us to the top of the Championship this season. If we had made changes in January, it would have suggested we got things wrong in the summer. And results point to that not being the case."
