Keith Curle says he is in no rush to add more fresh faces to his ranks in the build-up to the 2012.13 campaign.
The Notts boss has recruited eight new players this summer but has expressed a desire to land two or three further targets.
A number of trialists mixed in with the contracted squad members during the opening week of pre-season and Curle is keeping a close eye on them in the build-up to Saturday’s friendly with Buxton.
However, the manager is happy to play the waiting game with his next recruitments so that he can secure the best available talent.
“If there was no room to bring anybody in I wouldn’t waste their time,” he told Magpie Player.
“What I’ve said to them is come here and give it your best and as soon as I make a decision I’ll let them know.
“I won’t have anybody hanging around the football club who I don’t think warrants or merits being here.
“But the door is always open and there’s still money available in the budget to bring in further players.
“There’s other avenues that are available to us as well, it’s not always free transfers.
“There might be younger players at football clubs under contract that might need the experience to come out, some people are older players that have still got a year left on their contract that don’t fit in at Championship and Premier League teams’ plans.
“They might not be available to us as well but they might become near the start of the season because they’ll by trying to impress their managers to say they are part of the squads.”
