Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams says it may be some time before the League Two club make any new signings.

Adams has been in charge since 11 June after succeeding John Sheridan as manager at Home Park and has just 14 players contracted to the club.

"I had a meeting with the chairman yesterday to go over the budget and everything, so then we can go forward and try to get players in," he said.

"I don't see it being in the near term but we're working on it," Adams added.

Adams has agreed a new deal with reserve goalkeeper James Bittner, who will also act as goalkeeping coach after Rhys Wilmot left as part of a number of backroom changes.

Ex-Ross County manager Adams has had talks with out-of-contract players Anthony O'Connor and Tyler Harvey, but as yet they have not signed new deals.

He continued: "We obviously have to add to the squad and, depending on the budget we've got, we've got to work to the constraints of that and be ready for 8 August.

"We've assessed what we have in the squad, we're assessing the players we're going to take in and we'll get to the point where we'll obviously make signings."
