WANDERERS have been given the go-ahead by the Football League to make two signings before the weekend.

The Bolton News understands permission was granted yesterday to press ahead with recruitment plans – with striker Jamie Proctor and winger Chris Taylor the first two new faces due through the door, subject to medicals.

Defender Mark Beevers may yet make it a hat-trick but is yet to finalise an agreement with the Whites.

It is still unclear whether the embargo will be completely lifted as written confirmation of the League’s decision is in the post and may yet detail some spending restrictions.

But both Proctor and Taylor are booked on to the club’s pre-season fitness camp in Sweden, becoming the first permanent signings in seven months at the Macron Stadium.

Phil Parkinson spoke earlier today of his eagerness to “press the button” on a couple of deals, feeling time was of the essence.

“I think it needs to be resolved but it’s moving in the right direction, which is good news for the club,” he said.

“I have agreed a few deals for players but they won’t wait forever. We need some closure on them by the weekend and ideally I’d like some of them on the plane with me on Sunday night.

“Everyone is working towards that and the club can’t do any more than it is doing at this moment in time.”

Parkinson also spoke about Tyler Garratt’s move to Doncaster Rovers, admitting the lure of guaranteed first team football at the Keepmoat Stadium in League Two was a deciding factor for the young defender.

“It was a deal that was in place before I came,” he said. “I did have a chat with him but I think his mind was set – he’d been told he would be number one left-back and I couldn’t say to him that he’d start here.

“Once a player’s head has moved away from a club I think it’s the right thing to let him go. I wish him all the best.”

More sales are possible this summer as Parkinson looks to address an imbalanced squad which has suffered from the lack of signings since the turn of last year.

“It will take time but I said when I came here that the squad would need reshaping considerably,” he said.

“I think there will be a lot of movement in the next few weeks and those decisions will be crucial to the season ahead.”
