“There was a lot of speculation but it’s over and done with now and we can concentrate on building for a new season.
“Really, trying to get better is our main priority, of course. I hope there will be less business to be done as there has been over my first two years. I hope there will be single figures in terms of playing coming in, unlike the double figures or beyond it [who have come in during the last two summers].
“It will bring us more stability but I’ve got to choose the right player to make us better for next season and not think about standing still, even though we have had a fantastic season this season.”
