McDermott made Oldham striker Matt Smith his first summer acquisition earlier this month and is happy to have added another transfer target to his ranks, although the mystery man will not be revealed until next week.

"I've got a verbal agreement with one player which will happen next week," McDermott told the club's official website.

"As far as I'm concerned that agreement is a deal so that will be done."
