Clarke Looking to the Loan Market as 'Players Are Not Stepping Up to the Plate'

Darrell Clarke is keen to add to his squad over the next few weeks.
Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken to the local press and confirmed he is open to making signings during the ongoing January Transfer Window.

Clarke, who, along with the recently recalled Jake Scrimshaw, will be without attacking midfielder Rory Holden for at least the majority of the rest of the season, admitted he is hoping to sign so-called 'free loans' to fill the gap.

The manager will also have to do without on-loan Bournemouth striker who recently completed a loan switch to Newport County, also spoke of his frustration as certain members of the current crop aren't stepping up to the mark.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Darrell said; "Potentially, we’re going to have a look at the free loan market.

"One or two players are not stepping up to the plate and not showing me anywhere near enough to get an opportunity.

"We might have to look at that market to freshen things up a little bit. I think it would help the group to a certain extent.

"But we’ll have to see what we can do, there’s no promises. We have a lot to talk about and organise and the proof will be in the pudding the next time we step on the pitch."
