MORTON manager Jonatan Johansson is ‘very pleased’ at his transfer business over January.

The Ton brought in five new players while eight players left Cappielow before the transfer window closed.

Four of those signings came within the last 10 days of the month, with the club also set to add former Newcastle United goalkeeper Brendan Pearson.

While the business done by the Ton was later than he would have liked, Johansson is happy with his transfer dealings.

He told the Tele: “I’m very pleased with the players who came in, it took longer than I had hoped. We’ve been working really hard, the chairman, myself and Warren [Hawke, Morton’s chief executive] to get these done over the line.

“I’m happy, there was time when it was frustrating and it was taking too long, and we had important games in that time, you want the reinforcements to come in and we were very short at times.

“I did think certain games you could see that, and it was frustrating, but I didn’t want to panic or do anything that might damage us.

“I wanted to think longer-term for us and I feel like you always want to do a lot of business, but the January window you have to be careful what you do with the budget. It’s good business instead of a lot of business.

“It will be a different squad, with different player types to bring us something more exciting.”

Meanwhile, Morton’s encounter with Falkirk will be the first Championship game to be beamed live on BBC Scotland’s new channel. The fixture has been switched to Friday March 1, kick-off 7.05pm.
