He added on BBC Radio Lancashire: "It's an open secret we would like another striker at the club."

"Strikers don't usually come cheap," he said.
"It's unlikely we're going to find a 20-goal-a-season man for £500,000.
"Will we find a striker? I think we will. Obviously, there are names in the frame."
