WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats head coach John Kear has revealed that he has three signings lined-up for when the club emerges from administration.

Kear hopes that the administration process facing the club is quickly resolved and he intends to strengthen the squad at the earliest opportunity.

He said: “The administrators will sell the business as a going concern and maintain this group of players. There will be no-one going out and, while you are in administration, you can’t recruit as well.

“As soon as we come out of administration I am not saying that will still be the case. There may well be some to-ing and fro-ing for various reasons.”

Kear added: “We have stuck to a budget but that budget may change when we have sat down with the new owner.

“It’s not just about having money it’s also about who is available. Everyone is under contract so it’s a matter of prising people away and there are also quota spots to consider.”

When asked how many players he is hoping to sign, Kear revealed: “Three. We would have to prise them away [from other clubs] or bring them from overseas.

“There are lots of factors to consider first but I know there are three players who I know would be very happy to join this club.”

Kear would not reveal the players’ identities or the positions in which they play. With regard to players potentially leaving the club, Kear simply stated: “No-one is going anywhere until the new owners come in.”
