Preston chairman Peter Ridsdale is prepared for a month of transfer activity with new manager Graham Westley.

North End completed the capture of Westley from Stevenage last Friday and the 43-year-old will take charge of his first game when Leyton Orient visit Deepdale this weekend. However, Westley will not be raiding his former club during the transfer window following an agreement between the two sides.

Ridsdale said: "The first thing he's going to do is assess what he's got and then work with me on doing what we have to do to make this team stronger."

He added: "If that means players coming in and out then that's a normal part of football."

"You don't see teams and squads that are static - you see teams where some come in and some come out.

"And I expect that process to be the same here that it is anywhere else.

"I don't want to talk about budgets because that puts the prices up elsewhere, but we will move players in and out to the best of our ability in line with what Graham's views are on our strengths and weaknesses."
