Vinny Perth has refused to rule out adding to his squad further before the transfer deadline on Saturday February 22nd.

The Dundalk boss has already made five signings during the close season following the capture of Darragh Leahy from Bohemians, Will Patching from Notts County, Greg Sloggett from Derry City, Cammy Smith on loan from Dundee Utd and Serbian winger Stefan Colovic from Proleter Novi Sad.

While the 43-year-old says he has nothing else up his sleeve, he said that there was always the possibility of further additions as long as the window was open.

Asked was there the possibility of further arrivals, the Dundalk head coach said: “There is and there isn’t.

“There’s no one that’s a day or a week away from signing or anything like that.

“We have got the ability to add to the squad but it’s going to be difficult to strengthen the squad now unless it’s of the highest level.

“We’re really happy with what we’ve done so far but I wouldn’t rule it out that we’ll add at least one more,” said Perth.

The Lilywhites boss said he was pleased with his acquisitions to date.

“One of the areas we wanted to improve on was in our front line. We lost Jamie McGrath but replaced him with Cammy Smith, Will Patching and Stefan Colovic.

“We’ve definitely more options than we had last year but whether we’ve improved our not on the pitch, we’ll find out in 10 months time.

“When Michael Duffy couldn’t play last season we had to play Patrick McEleney on the left to fill in for him but now Smith, Colovic and Patching can play there so we’ve good options.

“There’s no doubt that certain players like Will won’t be a star in the first month or two for various reasons but someone like Jordan Flores we bought as a more medium term option because we knew we had to rebuild him.

“Now that he’s had a year here he has bought into everything we do so he’s like a new signing as well.

“Sloggett and Leahy are experienced in this league already so we’d be hopeful they will hit the ground running for us,” said Perth.
