Alan Hardy has stressed that Notts County are seeking to do their January transfer business early in the window to allow for players to be settled come the end of the month.
So far, the Magpies have made one signing, Liam Noble registering as a player after returning to Meadow Lane from Forest Green Rovers in October last year.
Hardy also mentioned that Notts are vying to sign two "highly valued players" on loan, one of which is also on the radar of League One leaders Wigan Athletic.
“We’re in close negotiations with a couple of players to bring a couple of players in on loan,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“It’s unfair to say who they are at this stage. Wigan are after one of them so it’s between us and them.
“They’re top of League One so we’re working hard to sell Notts County to him. If it comes off it will be really exciting for the fans.
“If not we’ll move on to the next target. The important thing is they’re both highly valued players.
“We’re only going to bring people in who can make a real difference and we think these players can.
“We’re not planning to leave it late. We want to get players in the team and settled in January as opposed to not playing until February.”
