Nesta Guinness-Walker will not be the last Stevenage signing of the January transfer window if manager Steve Evans has his way - and they are in conversation with another agent over a fourth January deal.

The left-back has moved to the Lamex Stadium on loan for the remainder of the season and he follows two more temporary deals - MK Dons goalkeeper Craig McGillivray and striker Vadaine Oliver from Bradford City.

But the League One promotion challengers are hunting for more as they look to fill areas and strengthen their squad further.

Evans said: "When the window was approaching, we targeted areas within the team that we said we need to strengthen. 

"I think arguably we've done three out of four or five. 

"We've certainly said we need to bring some serious competition for Taye [Ashby-Hammond] in goal. He’s done very well but we needed serious competition.  

"Craig McGillivray brings that. He was stunning at the training ground game on Tuesday. 

"Vadaine Oliver brings a presence but you have to play in a certain way to get the best out of him. 

"I think we've always done that [with similar strikers] all through our management career, going from Chris Wood at Leeds, Alex Revell at Rotherham and Ivan Toney at Peterborough. 

"You play a way that feeds those guys. 

"So we’ve brought three in and my understanding is that [director of football] Leon Hunter is meeting an agent [on Thursday] in respect of one more. 

"That may or may not happen, all we've done is discuss names and Leon has worked great to get the three in the building already. 

"They are really good business for us." 

And with the month long transfer window heading into its final week, the Boro boss believes more and more deals will soon be getting completed.

He said: "I first became aware from Leon that Nesta was available on Friday of last week and he was in the training ground after the weekend. 

"We’d asked earlier, even before the window opened, and quite clearly he was not available.  

"Obviously [Reading] are moving things around to do their own business. 

"It’s like we are saying now, we may have to move one or two out to facilitate one or two more coming in. 

"But if the window was to close today, we’ve got a really good squad and I’ve got no issues."

And Evans gave more details on why he plumped for Guinness-Walker to come in as competition for Dan Butler at left-back.

"He's a good player," said the manager. "I first became aware of him when he was at Wimbledon playing against my teams. 

"And I’ve still got right-backs dizzy because he was running by them so much. 

"I made a move to try and get him but obviously when someone like Reading comes calling then the kid went there. 

"He played a lot of games under Paul Ince and I spoke to both Paul and Thomas Ince and they had big compliments towards the kid. 

"I didn't speak about whether he’s a good player, I know he's a good player, but we spoke about what his character was like. 

"He came in at the early part of the week, took part in the game on Tuesday and he was as good as any one on the pitch, if not better than most. 

"He’s a really good player but we need to get him up to minutes in terms of first-team minutes. 

"He’s got loads of U23 minutes and training ground minutes, he doesn’t miss a day going from his record, touch wood. 

"He's exciting, very talented going forward but we've got work to do with him defensively."
