Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna says he's not sure if he'll have added to further to his squad before next weekend's crunch home clash with League One leaders Plymouth Argyle.

Massimo Luongo joined as a free agent yesterday to bolster an injury-hit midfield, with the Blues now understood to be working on deals for forwards George Hirst (Leicester) and Nathan Broadhead (Everton).

Asked if any business was close to being concluded, McKenna paused before replying: "You never know how close things are to be honest. There's nothing on the A12, I can tell you that. So you can have a fairly quiet Friday evening!

"But we're working very hard on some targets and when there's some news to update people with the club will be very prompt on that."

Asked whether he would like to get new faces in before next Saturday's visit of the Pilgrims, he said: "Those two issues are completely separate. Plymouth, of course, is a big match, as is Oxford the following week.

"If there are additions by that stage then great, but if not we'll be confident and strong with what we've got in the building."

Asked if there had been interest shown in any of his players, the Blues boss said: "There always is, I'd like to think, because we've got some good players here who have performed well.

"Certainly those who are in our first team group and playing minutes we've got no desire, no willingness, not thoughts whatsoever on any of them leaving. That's really not in question at the moment.

"Of course there are always enquiries at this time of year about players in your group who are not getting that many minutes, as well as players of yours who are out on loan."
