CHESTER CITY will complete a double signing this morning, and they are also hopeful of adding a third player prior to Saturday's home match against League Two leaders Yeovil Town.
Liverpool's Robbie Foy has agreed to join City on a one-month loan deal, while former Sheffield United midfielder Ashley Sestanovich will sign permanently.
Edinburgh-born Foy, 19, can play in midfield or up front and has been a regular in Liverpool reserves this season.
Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan said: "Both these signings are extremely exciting. Robbie has had an excellent grounding at Anfield.
"Hopefully it will lead to a permanent deal, but in the short term, Robbie will be a great addition."
Mr Vaughan continued: "Sestanovich has gained experience this season with Grimbsy, so he knows football at this level."
The signing is subject to a medical that will be under-taken this morning. In another development, City have inquired about the availability of Tranmere Rovers's David Beresford.
The 28-year-old, who is out of contract with Rovers at the end of the season, has previously been with Oldham Athletic, Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle.
"We have made an approach to Tranmere about David Beresford's availability. Hopefully we will get a positive response, and we can take the matter forward," added Vaughan.
"We are building for the future at Chester City. Obviously we want to finish as strongly as we can, but we are also already preparing for next season."
