Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock has money burning a hole in his pocket - he just cannot find anyone to spend it on.
The Bramall Lane kitty was boosted further by the sale of last season's top scorer Andy Gray to Sunderland.
Warnock has so far failed in his quest to find a replacement and is starting to get desperate.
"I had money to spend before Andy Gray went to Sunderland, but it has been difficult," Warnock complained to the club's official website.
"Richard Cresswell and Clinton Morrison I've enquired about and others have been mentioned, but it's not straightforward because there's not the type of player we want out there at the minute.
"I spoke to Preston about Cresswell and tried to keep it under wraps but it came out. Although we haven't had contact with Morrison, we're told he wants to try and fight for his place at Birmingham.
"Our scouts are currently in Europe looking at players and we'll have people out watching games every weekend.
"It's a matter of being patient and waiting to see what happens."
