Dartford manager Tony Burman will work round the clock in an attempt to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes on Monday night.

Burman pulled off one permanent deal in January, signing winger Nathan Green from Dagenham & Redbridge.

He also agreed loan moves for Daggers striker Christian Doidge and Plymouth defender Jamie Richards - who made his Darts debut in the 2-2 draw with Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Burman's phone will be busy until the window shuts at 11pm on Monday.

Asked if he would be doing any more deals, the Darts boss said: "I’m still hoping to. I’m never going to give up on it.

"I’d like to bring some players in who I could sign until the end of the season on permanent deals if I can do it. I’ve been trying but it hasn’t come off yet. They would be coming from League clubs.

"Players at the moment are getting released at the last minute and, like we’ve done with most clubs, where we’ve been notified, we’ll talk to those players.

"I’m still hoping to bring some players in on loan but I only have to wait another week with the loan players and we can loan again.

"I’m pleased that I’ve brought Jamie Richards in from Plymouth. I met him last week and had a great conversation with him. He’s 20 years of age and he’s done alright for us today. He only trained with us on Thursday.

"I’m hoping to bring some more in to add to the squad."
