MORTON manager Jonatan Johansson says he expects movement at Cappielow over the January transfer period.

The Ton boss joined the club back in September, after the summer transfer window had closed at the end of August.

The Finn inherited previous manager Ray McKinnon’s squad, which he had developed over the summer before leaving to join Falkirk.

Despite the constraints, the former Rangers and Finnish national team assistant has extended Kerr Waddell’s loan deal with Dundee, and allowed midfielder Kyle Thomson to be released early from his contract.

The Cappielow boss expects there to be some readjusting of his squad over the next month, and plans are beginning to be put in place.

He told the Tele: “I think every manager always wants to freshen up his squad when the opportunity arrives, whether it’s in January or the summer.

“There are certain areas where we are short of players, and there are certain areas that are top heavy. We would of course like to manoeuvre.

“Before we do that we need to make sure the finances are alright, and the players [we have] can determine if and when we can bring someone in, and that is still the case.

“In January the budget is reduced compared to the summer, and that’s why the January window you need everything in place before you can go about making changes, and that’s not the case yet.”
