Hull City manager Phil Brown is hopeful of bringing a total of four players to the KC Stadium this month.
The Tigers are currently closing in on the captures of Wigan Athletic's Kevin Kilbane and Luis Boa Morte of West Ham United.
Brown, though, is targeting a further two signings as he looks to bolster his squad for the remainder of the Premier League campaign.
He said in the Hull Daily Mail: "I would like, in an ideal world, maybe three or four players in and three or four players out.
"We'll be talking to both players and if they both come then fantastic.
"We are down the line on a number of them but these things are a slow process.
"We have got another couple of weeks to work at it and hopefully bring the right players in to improve the squad and bolster confidence levels.
"To freshen the place up wouldn't be a bad thing."
