Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson has identified an unnamed central midfield player as his top target during the transfer window.
But the Owls boss does not expect to make any signings before Tuesday's League One game at Scunthorpe United.
Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I had a meeting with (chief executive) Paul Aldridge and Milan Mandaric and spoke about a central midfielder.
"I'd like to see if we could do something, that's not changed."
He added he was keen not to give too much away and jeopardise any potential transfers.
"We know what we're trying to do, but at times I say things and cause more problems than I solve."
