Kevin Blackwell has called for financial backing if Sheffield United are to challenge for promotion next season.
The Blades, who have seen their 2010 campaign torn apart through injuries will begin next year with a blank canvas, and very few players still under contract.
However, with Sunderland's Phil Bardsley an early rumour, it appears United could be setting their sight high despite recent claims of having little to spend.
It's reported that fourteen players are required at Bramall Lane next season, in addition to the returning Billy Sharp and Kyel Reid who have both impressed during their loan spells this season.
Players such as James Harper, Glen Little and Jonathan Fortune who signed short term contracts this year haven't had their future decided yet, and it's unknown whether Blackwell will look to retain them.
In an interview with Radio Sheffield earlier in the week, Blackwell did say that Europe was a target, but too many players from abroad can disrupt the team, so no more than three are expected.
What United fans can be assured of is a rebuilding process with more players tied down to permanent deals, especially with the number of loan players who've been used this season.
'We've got to build something, build our own squad, to be able to compete with teams like Newcastle.
'To have come so far, to be in the position we have been for much of the season where we were still in with a shout is a credit to the players' application and commitment because it's not been easy for them.
'All of us work hard because we want the same thing. My staff and myself always keep an eye on those who could be assets.'
