WESTFIELDS are hopeful that a defender who plays in the league above will sign tonight.

Manager Sean Edwards is also hopeful that a striker will come on board by Monday, with two other players - a winger and another striker - weighing up their options.

In total, Edwards has spoken to seven players as he looks to boost his squad for next season.

Of those seven players, two are defenders, three are midfielders and two play upfront.

"There are a number of players that we've targeted that we've targeted in certain positions that we think will add to the squad," said Edwards.

"Hopefully one will sign later today because I think he will be a really good signing for us."
