Iffy Onuora is willing to listen to offers for strikers Jamie Cureton and Tony Thorpe.Swindon Town manager Iffy Onuora has confirmed that he is willing to listen to offers from other clubs willing to take Jamie Cureton and Tony Thorpe on loan.
Both Cureton (pictured) and Thorpe moved to The County Ground during the summer, but as of yet have not made the input Onuora was hoping for, scoring just one goal between them.
The Robins manager now believes that a spell away from the club would benefit both players, allowing them to regain some sharpness and, more importantly, score some goals.
"I have spoken openly to both players and we felt that both parties could benefit from Jamie or Tony going somewhere for a month to regain some sharpness and get some goals under their belts," he told the clubs official website.
"However, at this stage I have not had any enquiries for either player although I am expecting a call from Tony's agent to discuss things.
"They won't get the match sharpness they need from just training, they need to get out and play some games and get their confidence back."
Should a suitor come in for one of his strikers, Onuora has conceded that it may be difficult to replace them because of the new transfer system in place which limits a club to a maximum of five loanees to be named on a matchday team sheet.
However, despite these hindrances, Onuora will continue looking for players that will improve his squad.
"We are still looking to strengthen the squad although the amount of loanees we already have here may hamper that search somewhat," Onuora admitted.
"The system seems to have changed a little bit and we don't have as much flexibility as we did last season."
