WEYMOUTH are “actively looking” in the player loan market, according to boss Brian Stock.

Stock currently has a squad of 20 players to choose from – an amount he admitted before the season would be a ceiling number.

However, the Terras were in talks to re-sign Aston Villa centre-back Dom Revan before his temporary switch to Northampton.

And following the pre-season friendly with Chelsea, Stock has also been negotiating with the Blues over the possibility of signing some of their young talent.

With a near fully fit squad and a side currently on a two-game winning streak, Stock told Echosport he would handle the subject of loans delicately.

He said: “We’re going to take our time – obviously the loan window has closed for Premier League clubs.

“But we’re actively looking. It’s a tough one to take someone into a squad that’s almost fully fit.

“You run the risk of maybe upsetting one or two. We’re also only one or two injuries or suspensions away from being a wafer-thin squad.

“So, things are OK at the moment. We don’t need to rush into anything. The lads that came in that were on the fringes have put in a performance.

“Quite frankly, I’m happy with where the squad is at the moment.”

Elaborating on the Revan talks, Stock confessed he was “gutted” to lose out his signing.

He said: “It’s good that Dom tests himself in the League. We were very interested but it’s right for him and the club (Villa) for him to give it a shot.

“I wish him all the best. I was a bit gutted to not get him but he’s a great lad and great character.”
