Sheffield Steelers are homing in on their final import forward.

“It’s taken a while but I think we are a lot closer” said coach Paul Thompson.

“I’ve had options for this position but I needed to get the right style of player who fits in with what he have around him. We’ve chased one guy for a while and that might or might not happen; I can’t wait forever. We have work permits and visas to obtain before training camp starts in early August.

“We’ve identified another player and we have been speaking with him and his agent about bringing him here and completing our forward line up. He seems excited, but I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself until the paper work comes back. If he does come than I’m happy with our forwards. They give us speed, skill and grit and as a coach you always look to balance your offense.”
