The first team squad is currently away in Ireland getting ready for the start of the 2016 / 2017 Championship season.

The new season is less than a month away, less than a month before we entertain Newcastle United in a Friday evening fixture live on Sky Sports.

But, when it comes to bringing in fresh talent, time is fast running out.

At the conclusion of the 2015 / 2016 season, 9 of the first team squad were released.

To bring his squad numbers up to a respectable level Slavisa Jokanovic has spoken about bringing in another 10 new faces.

But bringing in new faces takes time and our gaffer has concerns about not bringing in these new faces in good enough time to get them bedded in for that first game.

Using the social network media, Jokanovic has tweeted,

Pleased with the players’ work in Ireland but we need new additions over the next few days to build a competitive squad for the season. #FFC

Time to get a move on with these deals then!
