In our recent poll (suggested by member ‘barrydoom’), we asked the fans how many new players they think we need to sign for the new season.

Here’s how you voted:

None – 3%
1 or 2 – 3%
3 or 4 – 58%
At least 5 – 29%
Practically a new team! – 7%

The majority of fans (58%) believe we need at least 3 or 4 new faces in readiness for the new season while 29% think we need 5.

So far, Martinez has signed 3 players – Jason Scotland, Matty Collins and Ferrie Bodde but has yet to replace goalkeeper Andy Oakes as well as strengthening our rather poor defence.

I’d like to see 3 more players this summer. I think we need a left sided midfielder following the release of Tommy Williams. A new (preferably no 1) goalkeeper and a centre back after Iriekpen today confirmed he has rejected our new contract offer.

Darryl Duffy could also still be a possible signing after a change of chairman at Hull City. A move for the striker looked to have been ruled out after previous chairman Adam Pearson asked for a £500,000 fee for his services.

Today was deadline day regarding the 4 out-of-contract players at the club. Akinfenwa and Iriekpen and confirmed their departure while O’Leary has been given more time to decide as he is currently out of the country.

Garry Monk is the only player so far to have signed a new deal. Are you glad he’s signed? Let us know in our new poll.
