When asked if any new signings were on the horizon, Ardley said: "No not at the moment.
"We're working hard to try and make sure whoever we bring in is the right person.
"We don't want to go and jump the gun and then realize that somebody we would have preferred would become available.
"We're working hard and we're close to having options on that list. But it's not something we can just click our finger and make happen.
"We've got a loan space available, but we have only got one space to make the five up.
"All things are on the table still but, certainly, if you do a permanent deal you might end up with a player who will want longer than just the rest of this season.
"Then you're eating into what you might be looking at doing in the summer."
