Crawley Town head coach Dermot Drummy is hoping to make another new signing on transfer deadline day.

The Reds boss hopes to bring in one more player, believed to be a striker from a National League club, before the deadline of 11pm tomorrow (Tuesday) to boost his squad.

However to afford it he needs to create room in the budget by sending two players out on loan.

Drummy said: “We need to tell fans that we are not in a position to spend £200,000 on a player.

“We are Crawley, who have 2,000 fans, so we cannot afford what some clubs are arranging.”

So far this window Crawley have signed midfielder Dean Cox, who had been released by Leyton Orient and ex-Arsenal midfielder Conor Henderson on a permanent contract.

On Thursday Reds recruited former Derby County and Northampton defender Josh Lelan on an 18-month contract.

In the other direction, Mitchell Beeney and Alex Davey returned to Chelsea earlier this month having completed loan spells at Crawley.
