Leeds boss Simon Grayson is hoping to include a new loan signing in his squad in time for Saturday's game at Scunthorpe but refused to confirm or deny his reported interest in Bolton defender Andy O'Brien.
Chairman Ken Bates went public earlier this week on the club's intention to strengthen their squad following four defeats in their last five league matches while O'Brien has been linked to a temporary switch across the Pennines.
Grayson said: "It may be that we have a new player in for the weekend. I'm not saying who or which position.
"We need players who can some straight into the team who are ready to step in.
"Andy's a good player who might be available, so he's someone I'm aware of. As for who may or may not come in, I don't do speculation."
