He says the club already have a “good nucleus” of players and that he has the budget to add to the squad.

“The club have had two seasons now where they have stabilised in the Championship and we are looking now to take the club forward,” he said. “That’s the aim, fullstop.

“We want to be moving up the table and, ultimately, be in a place that is around the play-offs come the end of the season.

“It has to be the aim. It’s very simple as far as we’re concerned.”
