Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he wants sufficient support to see the club push for promotion next season.
Warnock has had a frustrating first month following the end of the season trying to bring in new players to the club. So far, he has added just Portsmouth defender Jason Pearce to the squad and he admits he is finding it both frustrating and disappointing.
Speaking on Radio Leeds, Warnock said, “It is a challenge to get a squad together that is capable of winning promotion.
“I want one shot at that eighth promotion and I am hoping I will get sufficient support to warrant that, and only time will tell.
“You have got to try and get the signings you can as quickly as you can. We have spoken to a number of players and I am hoping to get one or two signed sooner rather than later and only time will tell if we can do it.
“I am off on holiday this week and I will be disappointed if we have not brought anybody in this week but as we talk at the moment it doesn`t look likely.
“It is frustrating and disappointing but I have just got to get on with it.”
Leeds are still believed to be in the race for Portsmouth defender Joel Ward. The 22 year old has held negotiations with Leeds but is taking his time over the proposed move with a number of fellow championship sides in the hunt for the versatile player.
Reports today suggest that Ward has narrowed it down to two unnamed clubs.
With Warnock set to go away for his summer holiday on Friday, he is desperate to conclude a deal before his departure.
