But Critchley played down those rumours, insisting nothing is imminent at this moment in time.

When asked after Saturday’s game against Morecambe if any further signings can be expected this week, Critchley said: “Not at the moment, but the market can change very quickly.

“We’re working, as we always are, behind the scenes to identify the right players we think will improve our squad.
