Keane unhappy with inactivity

20 Aug 2010 - 15:02:00

Ipswich Town manager Roy Keane has bemoaned the lack of transfer activity at the club and he has insisted the side could have beaten Burnley last weekend if he had extra players to choose from.

The Tractor Boys conceded a last-gasp equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Portman Road on Saturday and the former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder is becoming frustrated.

With Jon Walters moving to Stoke City and Pablo Counago on the verge of departing, Keane wants to see new faces at the club, but he is being frustrated in his tracks.

Keane said: "We've got deals lined up but they've not been done. hopefully next week but you know we could have done with players last weekend because we had injuries at half time and we might have won the game if we had more options."

"I don't know. I really don't know I wish I had the answer. As I said we had players lined up twelve weeks ago who wanted to sign for Ipswich. I suppose we're doing a lot of talking.

"Supporters don't want to hear that though they want to see players and new players coming in and particularly in attacking positions as that's where we are short with Jon having left and Pablo possibly going today."
