'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Saunders -Three or four in over the next few days

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders says he is hoping to bring in three or four new signings in the next week.

It has been a difficult summer for Saunders who has had to reduce the wage bill considerably.

Saunders has had to rely heavily on last season`s youth team so far during pre-season. After the latest game, a 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, Saunders says it is now time to start bringing in new players.

Speaking on the official website, Saunders said, "Today is the day we start building and not dismantling. We might lose a couple more but I`m starting to build today and we`re probably going to get three or four players in within the next few days.

"It`s been a difficult summer but players are starting to come into the market now that we didn`t know were available.

'Players come back into pre-season thinking they`re in with a shout of playing, then they quickly find out they`re not and the come on the market by that time some of the other teams have already spent their money. Sometimes you can pick up some really good players that you didn`t expect to be on the market and I think we`ve got a couple of them coming in."


So far, just three players have arrived at the Keepmoat this summer. David Syers (Bradford City), David Cotterill (Swansea City) and Robbie Blake (Bolton Wanderers) all signing for the club.

Saunders is currently giving a trial to former Cardiff City defender Paul Quinn who was released by Cardiff City at the end of last season.

The club have also been linked with a move for Leeds United transfer listed striker Billy Paynter.

There are still a number of players expected to leave the Keepmoat before the new season. George Friend is reportedly on the brink of a move and Brian Stock is being linked with a number of clubs.

Glad to hear, I was beginning to think John Ryan would be dusting his boots off again.
