Phil Parkinson, the manager of Wrexham AFC, in talk to sign another player and wants to bolster his team before the transfer market shuts.

PHIL PARKINSON remains keen to add to his squad before the summer transfer window closes but the Wrexham boss insists focussing on his current group of players is just as important.

Parkinson, who saw the 16th placed Reds draw 1-1 at Barrow on Saturday to make it six points from five games since returning to League Two following a 15-year absence, is not short of options and has strength in depth.

However, star striker Paul Mullin suffered a collapsed lung and four cracked ribs during the club’s pre-season tour in America and is still on the sidelines while experienced goalkeeper Ben Foster announced his retirement four games into the league campaign.

“Hopefully we will make progress,” said Parkinson. “That will be a bonus if we do bring one in.

“But equally, it is about getting more out of the ones we have got.

“Look at Tom O’Connor at Barrow, he has had two really good weeks on the training ground, he has started a little bit slow but that was Tom how we know he can play controlling that midfield area for us.

“We have got to make sure that we keep focusing on the ones we have got and keep improving everybody.

“If someone comes in, that is a bonus; we are not hanging on that we are going to bring players in but it is a bonus if that happens and if we need to, we will act.

“We are looking at a couple of things but at this stage of the transfer window, you are very limited to options.

“We are in talks with players in different positions but for me, the most important thing is that some of our players are really starting to come into form.”
