Ipswich boss Roy Keane is confident of adding to his squad before the big kick-off on Saturday - but expects midfielder Owen Garvan to move out this week.
Garvan is on the verge of joining Crystal Palace and his move could free up some space as Keane hunts a goalkeeper and a striker.
He said: "We'll try to get one or two new faces into the club during the week.
"But it can be very difficult when you are dealing with clubs' valuations and on top of all that agents are involved as well.
"Owen's move looks like it is going to go through. We are disappointed to lose decent players but it's sometimes about moving players on to get some in."
