Hull City boss Phil Brown admits he's targeting at least seven new signings.
"Then they've got to get amongst it and get up to speed with their own squads, fitness level and mentality, it's a balancing act for any manager.
"But there's been a lot of talking going on, we've met with players, families and agents, we're trying to line everything up.
"What we did last year we signed three players in one day, something like that might happen in the near future, hopefully in the next week or two, that we'll sign two or three players in a short space of time.
"But come the start of the season, hopefully, we'll have six or seven players in."
