BUDDIES boss Danny Lennon admits he still has no idea whether or not he will be able to stretch his budget to bring in one more signing this summer.
Saints chairman Stewart Gilmour confirmed last week that his manager, right, would not be forced to sell any of his top players after telly bosses at Sky and ESPN announced they were sticking by the SPL.
Both companies have, however, negotiated reduced cash packages in return for screening top-flight clashes this season ... and club chairmen across the SPL are now busy checking their cash-flow projections for the year ahead.
St Mirren are no different, with Lennon still in the dark about whether he’ll be allowed to bring in another new face following the captures of Jon Robertson, Lewis Guy, Sam Parkin and Grant Adam.
He said: “We still don’t know the exact figures at this moment in time and, until we get that clarified, we are where we are.
“If there is no extra money, we will go on with what we have got because I’m very happy with the squad that I have.
“However, if we are able to spend and money becomes available, it would have to go on the right type of player.”
Many Saints fans have called for Lennon to snap up a left-back to replace departed Dutchman Jeroen Tesselaar, who has jumped ship to rivals Kilmarnock after just one year in Paisley.
However, Lennon insists that, if he is given the green light to spend, he could yet splash out on a different area of his team.
He said: “I don’t have a shortlist of players drawn up right now but I am always interested in quality players, no matter what their position is.”
