BOSS Scott Parker says he is "pretty confident" Cherries will further add to their squad in the remaining days of the January transfer window.

Clubs have until 11pm on Monday, January 31 to conclude their business.

Cherries have so far made two additions this month, signing defenders James Hill from Fleetwood Town and Ethan Laird on loan from Manchester United.

However, Parker remains keen to add some more attacking impetus into the side before the end of the month.

Asked if an attacking midfielder was on his list of targets, Parker said: "I think there is an area there where we can strengthen, along with a few others.

"That's not just the (only) area where I feel that we can look to build in a little bit more.

"I do think the front half of the pitch is an area where we are looking at, where we probably need to improve.

"Whether that is more of an attack-minded number eight, a winger or a forward. I think that area of the pitch is somewhere we are looking to try and improve a bit."

Asked if he would be happy to end the month with the squad he currently has, Parker continued: "I think we need to look to try and strengthen, just because of where we are and we've seen that over the course of this season.

"We've lost two players in David Brooks and Junior Stanislas with Premier League quality and unbelievable quality at this level.

"We've lost two of our wide men, so yeah, I think there is definitely an area we need to try and strengthen.

"But, in saying that, if that wasn't the case, like we've proven and like we've done in this half of the season, we will develop players.

"We will bring them to a point where they can produce performances and really go on the stage and do what they're doing.

"It's a tough window. We'd like to bring some players in. If it isn't the case, then I'm more than happy with where we're going and what we're doing."

Quizzed further on if he was confident of adding to his squad before the window slams shut, Parker added: "I’m pretty confident. I’m hoping. We’re trying to do some things.

"In saying that, it is a difficult window. It’s really tough, we’ve found that.

"We’ve been very fortunate to have done two bits of business in Ethan and James Hill, which I was extremely pleased with. I was very happy with that.

"But we’re 10 days away from this window closing. It will be difficult, but hopefully we can try and do something.

"You often find in this window, everyone waits until the last day or two before everyone starts to show their hand or wants to move things on.

"But we’ll see. We’re active and if we can do it, we will. I don’t just want to bring people in who won’t improve us or aren’t going to add to us.

"So we’ll be sensible in that, but we’ll see."
