In the meantime the club are waiting on work permits to come through for Sadiq and Coulibaly, who’ll join on season-long loans from Roma and French side Angers, respectively.

Sadiq will look to add some firepower to the attack, while Coulibaly has been described as a playmaking central midfielder.

If both deals can be completed they would become the eighth and ninth signings the club has made this summer.
