JOHN SHERIDAN has ruled out the chances of signing a new striker before Plymouth Argyle’s game against Cheltenham Town at Home Park on Saturday.
However, the Pilgrims’ boss has revealed he is in advanced talks about a potential new recruit.
Sheridan would not reveal either the club he was talking to, or the player he wanted to sign, but confirmed it would be on a loan deal until the end of the season.
He has already taken Jason Banton and Matt Parsons on permanent transfers from Crystal Palace this month.
Sheridan said: “I’m talking to a club at the moment regarding a striker. I’m pushing and pushing it to try to get him in, but he’s not my player.
“If that doesn’t happen, but I’m hoping it will, I will look elsewhere because I do believe we need another body in that area.”
Sheridan added that he thought Argyle needed ‘a bit of a target man’ but would not comment any further.
“He’s not my player, so I think it’s unfair if I name him,” said Sheridan. “Obviously, as soon as he comes, everyone will know who it is.”
