Manager Roy Keane added Grant Leadbitter, Carlos Edwards and Liam Rosenior to his squad before the transfer deadline and Clegg has held preliminary discussions with a number of clubs interested in unwanted players.
Clegg said: "There weren't any close to leaving in terms of coming up right against the deadline but we did hold a number of reasonably advanced discussions about a couple.
"I'm pleased the squad is still intact, though, and we move on.
"It's very much a possibility that some may leave on loan. If players want to be playing football we'd rather have them out there doing that rather than having them taking up wages here."
