Melbourne Victory coach Ernie Merrick is in no hurry to fill the final position on his playing list.

Melbourne Victory coach Ernie Merrick is in no hurry to fill the final position on his playing list.

Merrick does not want to make a signing for the sake of it, if at all.

"We have now a visa spot and we have some money should we want to add to the team and I have talked about the centre-back (position),” Merrick said.

"But with Matthew Kemp, Steven Pace and now Matthew Foschini doing so well I am even questioning whether we need a centre-back, so we are going to hold off on the final signing if there is one."
