McInnes wanted to sign a centre-half before Friday's transfer deadline but will now scour the loan market over the international break.

"I'm hoping to have a new player in before we play Blackburn," he said.

"I was hopeful of getting one in before the Barnsley game but, after a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, it did not happen.

"But I'm still hopeful of getting one when the window reopens, ideally before the end of the two-week international break."
