DOUGIE Freedman reckons there is still business to be done for Wanderers as the transfer window ticks down to its final few days.

With loan signings Jan Gregus and Craig Dawson officially confirmed at the end of last week, the Whites boss hopes to make two more signings before Thursday night’s deadline.

Craig Davies remains the only permanent new arrival but he could soon be joined by 18-year-old Scottish prospect Gary Fraser, who is due to have a medical at the Reebok today.

Fraser’s club Hamilton Academicals announced on Saturday night that they had accepted an offer from Wanderers and that the former Celtic youth product – who can play in defence or midfield – is likely to sign early this week.

One player who will certainly not be coming to the club will be Birmingham City’s Marlon King.

The experienced striker had been subject to heavy rumour prior to Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat against Everton.

“I try to stay as professional as possible and not read any papers or forums because although I respect what the fans say, I have to make decisions based on what I see every day,” said the Wanderers boss.

“Marlon King is not someone I am bringing to this football club. One hundred per cent, no.”
