KARL Robinson is not expecting any late offers for any of his Oxford United players ahead of today's deadline in the top two divisions.

But the head coach, who is pushing to add a striker to his squad before the weekend, admits he will be glued to the coverage hoping a forward on the U's wish-list does not move elsewhere before the 5pm cut-off.

The deadline applies to clubs in the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship, with those in Leagues One and Two having until September 2 to complete their business.

And when it comes to outgoings, Robinson is relaxed about the chances of having to fend off any last-ditch approaches.

"No, I’ve run the battery down on my phone," he joked.

However, United's plans for the rest of the window could still be impacted today.

They have an attacking player in their sights, but only if they remain with their existing club past 5pm.

Robinson said: "There’s a player we’re looking at that we’re being told we have a very good opportunity if something doesn’t come off.

"So this afternoon I’ll be in my office and will be like every football fan.

"My blood pressure could get very high and I'd get very frustrated if I see the name come up.

"But it’s part and parcel of the industry, we’re in a food chain and we respect that."
