Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "There has been quite a bit of movement, especially on my phone which hasn’t stopped ringing. People you would not believe are coming out the woodwork.

"I’m not going to rush it because it because I don’t have to. I will make sure the right person comes in. A person I feel deserves to come into this group and wants to come in for the right reasons.

"I don’t want somebody who just wants to fill their day. I want someone to come in and develop themselves as well as the group. But I expect they will be in place before Gillingham on Saturday."
