WANDERERS are eyeing at least two more players by the end of the transfer window after wrapping up loan deals for West Ham’s Josh Cullen and Reece Burke.

Phil Parkinson was able to land two of his top summer targets, just in time for this weekend’s season opener with Leeds United.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic had insisted two of his most highly-rated academy graduates accompany the team on their trip to Austria and Germany but gave his blessing for them to link-up with the Whites for the start of the Championship campaign.

Parkinson now wants a striker and a left-back for competition in his squad but may have to loan out some of his younger professionals for experience in order to comply with his 23-man embargo quota.

Chairman Ken Anderson told The Bolton News yesterday he was pleased with the overall strength of the squad and remained on track with his plans to reduce playing staff costs.

“Overall we have reduced salaries but not sacrificed quality,” he said. “I am very pleased we have got the two young lads from West Ham in – and we’d like to have done that sooner but we were in the hands of their parent club on the timing.

“We have had challenges recruiting players, which are well-documented, and have not been able to pay transfer or loan fees. When negotiating with clubs like West Ham and Newcastle there have been times when other club have offered a lot more in terms of wages.

“But I am confident we can continue to do business and bring in a couple more players before the end of the window to strengthen areas identified by the manager.”

Wanderers fended off an enquiry from Millwall about Mark Beevers last week and Anderson insists there are no plans to sell any of Parkinson’s squad between now and September.

“We do not want to sell anyone,” he said. “You saw on Saturday against Stoke there were only two changes from the team that finished last season and the continuity makes us stronger. I think we have given the manager more options tactically.”
