Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez is looking to strengthen his squad in the winter transfer window.
The Latics sit 15th on the table ahead of Monday night's clash with 14th-placed Newcastle United and Martinez is desperate to improve that standing by adding some fresh faces in January.
"The way we've been running our football club we always try to work in advance and we're trying to get probably two or three players to help the ones we have got at the club to give us a real boost in January," Martinez said.
"Remember it is a difficult window but we have been working now for a long time to identify players who can bring us something different.
"We will work as hard as we can and our focus is to be a stronger squad when the window closes so that's not going to change."
