WANDERERS could soon resurrect a deal for one of Dougie Freedman’s near misses.

Despite adding six names to his squad last month – two on loan – the Whites boss has hinted he may still be in the market for some more.

No business will be done until next weekend when the loan window re-opens for clubs in the Football League.

After losing out on a Spanish-based winger on Thursday, Freedman acted swiftly to secure a month-long loan for Southampton’s Belgian winger Steven de Ridder.

And it is understood that the La Liga wide man could be revisited should the club decide against renewing De Ridder’s deal.

Speaking on Thursday, Freedman admitted he was still lacking in some areas of his squad.

"People think we have a lot of numbers but I think my squad is a very unbalanced one. Defensively wise we are very short.

“Over the course of the month I have probably missed out on two players to buy and another one on loan. That one might re-open again.

“But the way I work is that I bring players in for a reason, to fit a structure. I don’t rush anyone in because that stinks of panic.”
