STUART McCall is not anticipating an imminent dip into the transfer market.

City are tracking a couple of potential targets but are unlikely to make a move until they know the situation regarding the players currently out of contract.

Five of McCall's squad from last season are considering new deals, although he remains unsure about how many will accept what is on offer.

But until the club know for sure, McCall admits they cannot take the plunge over new recruits.

The Bantams boss said: "We've been looking and (head of recruitment) Greg (Abbott) and I have spoken to a couple of agents. You try to set up deals and get a figure that will suit the player.

"But on the other hand, we're also waiting on people to come back to us to say whether they are going to stay or not.

"You can't go ahead with any definite deals unless you know what the other lads are doing, so I can't see anything being done at this moment in time for a wee while."

Three of the starting line-up from the Wembley play-off final just over a fortnight ago – Mark Marshall, Rory McArdle and Tony McMahon – are considering their options, as well as Matt Kilgallon and back-up goalkeeper Rouven Sattelmaier.

McCall said: "The lads are away on holiday mulling over the offers – but the majority of them will probably get financially far better ones elsewhere. I wouldn't be over-confident of keeping many of them, if I'm honest."

While City wait for those players to make up their minds, recruitment plans will have to take into account the different scenarios.

McCall said: "Take Rory as an example. Looking at it now at centre half, we've only got Nat Knight-Percival if you don't count Romain (Vincelot).

"We'll certainly need another. But do you go get a right-sided dominant one and then Rory signs? So you try to look at options.

"As I said prior to the end of the season, we have drawn up two lists – players if we get in the Championship and ones we don't.

"Obviously because we didn't get up, some people will go elsewhere, which is fine.

"You work through the lists, speak to the agents and see what it would take, then you're ready to move."

Southampton right back Jason McCarthy, an ever-present on loan at Walsall last season, was one name thought to be on City's list but he is expected to sign for a Championship club.
