After last Saturday’s 0-0 draw away to Luton Town, the Serb reiterated that he expected promises to be kept regarding recruitment and has urged the club to land no less than four new signings before the window slams shut.
Last night, experienced midfielder Conor Hourihane,30, put pen to paper on a deal.
Also expected to make his way to Bramall Lane is Algerian international midfielder Adlene Gueioura on a free transfer, however it’s unclear if Hourihane’s move means a deal for the former Wolves man is off the table.
The 35-year old former Nottingham Forest, Crystal Palace, Watford and Middlesbrough midfielder is a free agent after leaving Qatari side Al-Gharafa Sports Club.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield Town and Coventry City are battling it out for the signature of Bradford’s Elliot Watt, Reading have agreed a deal with former Crystal Palace defender Scott Dann and Barnsley could be set to make a double swoop before the window shuts.
