SWINDON Town manager Michael Flynn says the club still has “one or two plates spinning” with hours of transfer deadline day remaining.

The Robins are yet to make a move on the final day of the window, with Town’s last two signings coming on August 22 and August 7.

Flynn has regularly confirmed throughout August that he is still chasing fresh faces but admits he has been snubbed more than once by a variety of players.

Speaking in his pre-Doncaster Rovers press conference on Friday lunchtime, Flynn provided an update on the current state of play.

He said: “Things are quiet. We’ve got one or two plates spinning, but that’s it at the minute.

“I won’t just be signing players for the sake of it. We’ve asked about a few, and they’re either not available or they’ve gone elsewhere.

“I am still after players, there’s just not much to say at this point. Don’t think I’m being coy or anything, there’s just not much to say right now.

“I’m still trying with one or two. If I get them, I’m sure you will find out very, very soon.”

Asked more specifically on trying again to sign Jake Young and Dan Kemp on permanent deals, Flynn said: “Not today, we haven’t, no.

“But we have [before]. It’s just a case of waiting and seeing really. I’m not sure that we will get it done, but we have tried.”

While the activity to bring more players in continues, Flynn – much to the relief of many fans – confirmed the club has not rejected any offers for any of its current staff either.

Asked if Town had received any bids today, Flynn said: “No, nothing at all.

“Unless something changes, there might be one who goes because they probably need football. But other than that, no.

“We haven’t got enough bodies to say: “you can go, you can go, and you can go.”

“I’ve been trying for the right people to come in, but if they’re not there then I’m not going to leave ourselves short.”

Having signed nine players already during the summer transfer window, Flynn says Town would be dangerously close to the edge of feeling uncomfortable over squad numbers if no one new arrives before 11pm.

The Swindon manager, therefore, is hoping for good behaviour from his team and a degree of luck with injuries too.

Discussing the situation if Town fail to bring anyone else in today, Flynn said: “We’re just going to need to be lucky with injuries and suspensions, especially with the key players.

“We’ve got Tom Clayton – who is five or six weeks away – who will add another body to us. Reece [Devine] is still long term, but we’ve got about 17 or 18 games before the next window – including the FA Cup first round – so we’re going to need to be lucky.

“But that’s why we try and look after them by helping them recover quicker. And we hope for no freak injuries.”
