WISBECH Town manager Dick Creasey is set to announce a new signing he describes as "exciting."
Creasey revealed his plans to bring a new player to the squad, saying: "I have been pondering a move for this player for three months and I hope to be able to sort things out before the weekend.
"He is with another club at the moment so it is not definite, but I remain 80 per cent sure that I can bring him to Wisbech."
Creasey, pictured right, remained tight-lipped on the identity of the player but the Wisbech boss did say: "He is an exciting name."

The new player could complete a move before the match at Clacton Town tomorrow (Saturday).
Clacton have failed to win a league match in their last four attempts and the Fenmen will be confident of picking up a victory following their impressive 4-1 win at Newmarket Town on Saturday.

A more bullish approach for the Fenmen midfield was rewarded by three first-half goals from Liam Nimmo, Danny Hussey and Liam Harrold.
A rather fortunate Newmarket goal midway through the second half did little to deter Wisbech and Lee Hudson made sure of the points with a fourth goal in the dying minutes.
Creasey said: "We played really well in the first half and, by the break, the game was all but over.
"I told the lads to play higher up the pitch and it worked to our advantage. There have not been enough goals from our midfield so far this season and I was eager to get support up to the strikers.
"We must put in performances like that every week from now on.
"We have the players and the ability to do well and we must prove it."
Creasey also revealed that he fears skipper Steve Appleby has been badly hurt. He said: "Steve has a nasty injury and I think that he has broken a rib."
Appleby will certainly miss tomorrow's game, as will Wayne Morris, who is yet to recover from a back injury, and Andy Lodge is suspended.
It is another busy week for Wisbech Town and the Clacton Town game is followed by Tuesday's home league match against Diss Town.
