Athletic continue their search for a midfielder and Kevin Horlock of Ipswich Town is a possible target. Horlock has played at West Ham, Swindon, Manchester City, back to West Ham and then on to Ipswich and played 44 times for Joe Royle's team last season. He has also won 32 International caps for Northern Ireland.

Ronnie Moore commented, "I know he is available and I have been looking at games he has played and injuries he has had. I have already put in a phone call to his agent. We will now wait and see."
