Nathan Brown has revealed nib Newcastle Knights supporters can expect another 'five or six' new signings to join the roster ahead of next season.
Having already added Melbourne premiership winning forward Tim Glasby and Cronulla ace Jesse Ramien to the list of incoming players, Brown anticipates more exciting signings.
"When you're signing a player, you're always looking to improve your squad," Brown said.
"Glasby certainly improves our squad, Jesse Ramien, the young kid from Cronulla the other day was one of the better players on the field.
"They're certainly players that will improve our squad and we're going to be looking at bringing another five or six in.
"Any time we sign someone, they've got to be a fair bit better than what we've got.
"We'd all agree Aaron Woods is a player that would improve our squad. Whether he's a player that would be interested or not, or whether we're interested or whether Canterbury would let him go – they're all the questions that need answering."
There's no denying the Knights are actively in the market for fresh faces to join the roster in 2019.
But Brown has poured cold water on speculation linking Canterbury-Bankstown forward Aaron Woods with a move to the Knights.
With reports surfacing over the weekend that Woods could exit Belmore at the end of the year, Brown said the Club has not spoken to the player or his manager.
"Any time there's front rowers on the market, we're always discussing that," Brown said.
"We haven't actually spoken to Aaron Woods or his manager about any of the speculation, I suppose you could say.
"I'm not sure what the story is with Canterbury or whether he is a movable piece.
"We certainly came into this year two or three middles short. We're in a strong position if someone like Woodsy becomes available and we think it's part of the plan and he wanted to come.
"They're all the questions that need to be asked. As we stand here, we haven't spoken to Aaron Woods or his management. I'm not sure how much truth is in it."
