CHESTER CITY are hoping to complete the signing of Liverpool goalkeeper Paul Harrison before Thursday's transfer deadline.
Harrison is a product of the Anfield School of Excellence and City chairman Stephen Vaughan is trying to agree a deal with the 20-year-old this week.
"I have spoken to Paul's agent and hopefully we can conclude a mutually beneficial deal prior to Thursday's deadline," said Vaughan.
"Paul has been a regular with Liverpool's reserve side, and he is a player whom we would like to be a part of our future."
Vaughan also hopes to tie up a deal for a proven goalscorer, currently with a league club.
"I would rather not divulge the player's name at this stage, but discussions have been held between ourselves, the player and his club and I am hopeful that we can bring him in prior to Friday's game at Mansfield Town."
Striker Robbie Foy was able to train yesterday after limping off near the end of Saturday's game against Notts County with a muscle strain. He will be available for the Easter programme.
Meanwhile, confusion surrounds the venue for tomorrow night's Pontin's League reserve team match with Wrexham.
Originally scheduled to be played on the ground of Newi Cefn Druids, their pitch now isn't available. Wrexham then moved the fixture to their Racecourse Ground but remedial work to the pitch means that it is unplayable.
The Welsh club have promised to finalise a venue and inform City of their decision this afternoon. Wherever the game is eventually played, it is scheduled to kick-off at 7pm.
