Norwich City captain Adam Drury admits he is disappointed the club have not been more active in the transfer market.
The Canaries skipper, who has been attracting interest from Derby County, is upset that manager Nigel Worthington has only been able to add Manchester City's Lee Croft to a squad that finished in ninth place last term.
"As a player, you like to see players coming in to the club as much as you can," he told Sky Sports News. "Obviously, 'Crofty' has come in but I'd liked to have seen perhaps a few more faces.
"That's down to the board and the club itself, how they're looking at things and how the finances are.
"Obviously, it's not ideal [the transfer deadline being on August 31]. If you've got new players coming in and the season has already started, it takes a bit of time for them to fit in.
"But if any new faces come in, then great."
Worthington has confessed that signing Croft for around £700,000 has blown most of his transfer kitty.
"I used most of the budget up on the Lee Croft situation," the City boss explained.
"There's a little bit left from that.
"All I can do is work closely with the board and, if and when I get a player I think will be of value to us, then I'll take the name and price to the board and see what they can do."
