Dario Gradi is scouring the transfer market in a bid to bring in a defender on loan.
Crewe manager Dario Gradi is making good progress in his bid to bring in a defender on loan.
Gradi is looking to add experience to his backline but admits that Alex are unlikely to be able to welcome a new addition before Saturday's match at Reading.
"We have made progress in regards to taking a defender on loan and we will be having a meeting to discuss it further," said Gradi.
"We want to improve our squad but I wouldn't have thought anything will be sorted before we go to Reading this weekend.
"We have also been out watching potential targets that we will be following up.
"These will be potential signings rather than loan deals though."
Crewe's need for defensive cover has been eased slightly with the return to fitness of Stephen Foster and Chris McCready.
