Jez Moxey says he expects a busy summer of transfer activity – and has bemoaned a wasted £10 million spent last season.
New manager Stale Solbakken will likely have to replace Matt Jarvis, Steven Fletcher and Kevin Doyle and Jamie O’Hara is also looking to stay in the Premier League.
“Stale looks to get value for money, which is something all football clubs should be seeking, so I think we’ll see some interesting player activity, or at least I hope we will,’’ said chief executive Moxey. ‘‘He’ll freshen things up. Since Steve Morgan’s been here we’ve managed to do business in each transfer window.
“This will be more challenging because we have moved from three years in the Premier League into the Championship.
“There’ll be some natural wastage.
“There’ll be players we want to move on, there’ll be players we want to keep hold of and there’ll be new players coming in.
“So I think it’s going to be a very busy summer.” Moxey added: “It’s important to learn from any mistakes that have been made.
“The reality is we spent £10million, or so, on trying to improve the team and as results have shown we got worse not better.
“So it wasn’t through a lack of ambition or money.
“You can always spend more and more money but had Manny Frimpong not been injured the situation could have been completely different.”
