Neil Warnock says he is looking to bring in up to eight players in the next couple of weeks.
Warnock has been frustrated in the transfer market so far this summer, adding just four new signings to his squad.
The new championship season is now just four weeks away from kicking off and Warnock is looking ahead to a busy couple of weeks in the transfer market Speaking prior to the game at Farsley Celtic on Friday night, Warnock said, “Over the next few weeks hopefully there will be a number of additions.
“I am looking for players that are going to make a difference and not just squad players.
“At the moment I am doing the best I can to put a good squad together to give us a good chance this season.
“I would like to bring another eight players in. You need a squad; it is not just the top end of the market players. You need back up when you get injuries so you need a decent squad.
The squad is looking thin at the moment. So far, Warnock has brought in Jason Pearce, Paul Green, Adam Drury and Paddy Kenny and he has seen Adam Clayton and Andy Lonergan leave for fellow championship clubs.
The Leeds boss started his summer clearout at the end of last season with Ben Parker, Mika Vayrynen, Mikael Forssell, Danny Webber and Alex Bruce all released by the club.
Warnock also has five players on the transfer list with Paul Rachubka, Paul Connolly, Andy O`Brien, Ramon Nunez and Billy Paynter seen as surplus to requirements. He is looking to bring in enough players to complement the first choice players as well as those good enough to come into the side when injuries and suspensions affect the side. “I am looking to bring in a substantial amount of players over the next few weeks. There will also be players leaving; we have a number on the transfer list.
“It disappoints me that we haven`t got more players in at this stage of the season. I think anything is possible over the next couple of weeks; it is just a matter of getting them over the line,” added Warnock.
Warnock has been boosted by versatile player Aidy White signing a new deal with the club, after it looked like he would be moving on this summer. The 20-year-old putting pen to paper on a new three-year deal on Saturday.
Midfielder Michael Brown is also closing in on a new one-year deal with the club.
Ross McCormack and Robert Snodgrass are yet to sign the new deals offered to them at the end of last season. Warnock admitted last week that five clubs have enquired about McCormack, whilst Norwich City have made a bid for Snodgrass that was turned down by the club. Norwich have since been reported as tabling a second offer for the Scottish international but Warnock declined to comment when asked on Friday night, only saying that Snodgrass would be travelling with the squad on Sunday to Devon and Cornwall for the week-long tour.
