Hearts sporting director Joe Savage is hoping that the club can strengthen their squad in the January transfer window. The Scottish Premiership has made a spectacular return to the league as they are in the third spot behind just Celtic and Rangers. They made a number of new signings this season including the likes of Ben Woodman on loan from Liverpool, Barrie McKay, and Beni Baningime. Despite the good start to the season, Savage revealed that the club is looking at additions to the squad and is well aware of the challenges the January transfer window has.
“January is never a good window to strengthen – it is hard, nobody wants to sell their best players or let their best players go,” Hearts sporting director Joe Savage said. “We will try and strengthen if we can, we will see what is out there. We want to strengthen but it is obviously a hard market. We are seeing, we are having a look just now to see what is out there, to see what we like and if we can manage to get something.”
“Robbie (Neilson) will tell us, the recruitment staff and myself, what he is looking for, the type of player, the profile of the player that he is looking for,” he added. “Myself, Will (Lancefield) – the head of recruitment – and George Brown – the lead recruitment analyst – and the scouts that we have got, we will do the work. We will go and scout games, they will recommend players to me, we will watch them, we will put dossiers together on them, and then we will put them to Robbie – maybe three or four good ones.”
