Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he will be looking to bring in another goalkeeper after selling Andy Lonergan to Bolton Wanderers.
Lonergan preferred a move back to Lancashire rather than fighting for his place with new signing Paddy Kenny, who arrived at Leeds from Queens Park Rangers last week.
With the Football League reinstating seven substitutes again this season, after one season of naming just five, Warnock is likely to include one amongst his substitutes, having preferred to name five outfield players following his arrival in February.
With Paul Rachubka on the transfer list and the only experienced goalkeeper remaining at the club, Warnock is looking to bring in another goalkeeper. Speaking on the official website, Warnock said, "I`ll be looking to bring one in.
"I think you have to have one on the bench with seven subs. You have to be realistic. I think seven subs is good because it also gives the younger players a chance."
Young Leeds goalkeeper Alex Cairns enjoyed some first team experience with the side last season.
The 19 year old was an unused substitute on six occasions last season and he was forced into the action at half time in Leeds 5-0 home defeat to Blackpool when Rachubka was having a nightmare evening in the Leeds goal.
Rachubka hasn`t played for Leeds since, having been at fault for all three of Blackpool`s first half goals.
The former Blackpool goalkeeper finished the season on loan at Leyton Orient and Warnock placed him on the transfer list at the end of last season.
