Tranmere boss Les Parry thinks other managers may stop talking to him after two of his loan targets suffered injuries.
Rovers were reported to have missed out on an Everton youngster last week, when the player in question damaged himself in training, and Parry admitted on Tuesday that a second potential signing would now not be coming to Prenton Park after picking up a knock.
"We've now had two players that were supposed to come in," he told the Liverpool Echo.
"One did his thigh and one did his ankle. Managers will not be answering their phone to me, thinking if we ask for one of their players, they're going to get crocked."
