Moore is particularly keen to add a central midfielder and the Free Press understands Rovers are in the final stages of talks with a top flight club over a loan in that position.

Reports elsewhere suggest Rovers have agreed a deal to re-sign striker Niall Ennis on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

But, it is understood, while Rovers have monitored Ennis’ situation there is no agreement in place, with focus firmly on adding the midfielder before Friday’s 5pm deadline.

“I want to strengthen the team as much as we possibly can,” Moore told the Free Press.

“The season has started and you look at the team, where it’s at and where there are areas we could do with more.

“If possible, I would like to strengthen. These next couple of days will be key to doing that.

“We’ll continue to see what we can do. We’ve spotted and identified, the hard part is bringing them in which I do keep saying.”

The Rovers boss is taking nothing for granted in the final days of the window as competition for players only increases.

He said: “When you see a player who you think would fit the Doncaster Rovers criteria, you’re in a situation where you then seeing if the individual wants to come and their club wants to allow it.

“And then all of a sudden you get competition from other parties that may have been alerted by your interest.

“That’s always the challenge when you spot players and you want to bring them in.

“And it’s all about bringing the right players in and not just ticking the box.

“You want them to come in and affect the team.

“I am looking at, I’m very much at it and we’re trying over the next few days.

“I’m looking to add more of that ilk to what we have. We need them with the games that are coming up.

“It’s a tough campaign and we knew that from the off.”
