STUART McCall is not anticipating any sudden moves in the transfer market.

City have been one of the busier clubs in League Two so far with four signings as well as new deals for Richard O’Donnell and Dylan Mottley-Henry.

McCall is still looking to add a few more before the campaign is due to kick off next month.

He has made a couple of approaches for players from higher divisions and is waiting for the clubs to get back.

“We’ve spoken to a couple of teams from higher up regarding players, either to come out on loan or take permanently,” said the City boss.

“But people aren’t rushing into decisions at the moment. The Premier League and Championship teams have just finished their seasons and aren’t due back for three weeks yet.

“It’s a staggered return for everyone so you have to wait. So there’s probably nothing close at the minute.”

Clubs will vote on Thursday on the salary cap that the EFL are keen to bring in straight away.

City will be limited to a wage ceiling of £1.5 million, although any contracts registered before the meeting now count at the average figure of £68,000 for cap purposes.

Wealthy Salford have invested heavily with former Rochdale striker Ian Henderson becoming their fifth summer capture.

Bolton have snapped up Eoin Doyle and City target Antoni Sarcevic among others as they rebuild after relegation.

But McCall has also been active as he fills the holes left in midfield at the end of last season.

Levi Sutton, Elliot Watt, Billy Clarke and Callum Cooke are all on board and he is pleased with how quick they have settled into the socially-distanced pre-season.

He said: “They’ve all been very good so far. The three lads who weren’t with us before, Clarkey, Elliot, Levi are all technically good and looked sharp.

“Having Cookie back is a boost for those who were already here.

“Dylan is a whole-hearted kid, who’s been doing everything at 100mph because he is so keen and eager and enthusiastic.

“Obviously we’ve got Richard back as well which everyone is happy about so it’s all good.

“We’d normally have morning and afternoon sessions but we can’t do that because you have to split the groups.

“In between, everyone would be mixing in the dining area and getting to know each other better.

“Now, it’s a case of they come in, do their work, get back in their cars and are away again.

“It’s a bit more distant but we’ll harbour that team spirit and creating the environment where everyone wants to come and be part of it.

“We’ve started doing that already. From day one on Thursday, they know what’s expected of them as individuals.

“When you train, you train hard. We’ll have our downtime and lighter moments but when we train, we do that to our maximum and that’s what we are after.”

Contrary to some reports, Boreham Wood striker Kabongo Tshimanga is not thought to be on City’s radar.

McCall currently has four centre forwards in the squad, although uncertainty remains over the future of James Vaughan, after his loan at Tranmere. Kurtis Guthrie also started only once under McCall.
