Oli could be poised for loan switch

Norwich City striker Oli Johnson could still be a target for Yeovil Town – when the loan window opens tomorrow.

The League One side failed in their bid to buy Johnson before the August transfer window closed on Wednesday when they were unable to match the Canaries' valuation of the player. But manager Terry Skiverton admits he still needs to add to his squad.

After a goalless draw at Tranmere, he said: 'If we keep clean sheets and keep building on the momentum, we will win more games than we draw or lose. But, for me, there is still work to do and we still need to bring in one or two players.'

The 23-year-old Johnson made 17 appearances on loan for the Glovers last season, scoring three times, and could still be on their wanted list, though Skiverton insists he will not make any hasty moves.

Asked whether he would be able to bring in emergency loans, he said: 'Not sure, it is as simple as that. We are going to be out and working, but what we are not going to be doing is rush into decisions. If I get the right ones, I will bring them in.'
