PARS boss James McPake has confirmed that Kane Ritchie-Hosler has undergone a knee operation - and said he "wouldn't imagine" the club will make further additions this month.

In this week's Press Sport, we revealed that Ritchie-Hosler was due to have surgery on Wednesday after suffering an injury to his meniscus, which came after he had made his first team comeback earlier this month.

The talented winger went under the knife after suffering an ankle injury during pre-season, and is now set to begin his rehab following his latest operation.

"Kane got surgery on his knee," McPake told the media at KDM Group East End Park earlier yesterday (Thursday).

"It went very well; a wee tidy-up in his meniscus. We'll get him right over the next few days and then we'll be able to assess it from there, how long it'll be.

"The week has been good. No new injuries, so that's a bonus. Paul Allan is back training, Andrew Tod is back. The lads have trained pretty well.

"Deniz (Mehmet) trained from Monday onwards, he's had a good week. He's looking sharp, actually, looking good.

"Bene(Kyle Benedictus), we're not sure (how long he'll be out for). Breeny (Rhys Breen) will be another three to four weeks away, I think."

Clubs outwith the SPFL Premiership can still bring players in on loan until the end of September, as well as bring in free agents, despite the closure of the transfer window at the beginning of the month.

McPake has so far made three loan signings - Harry Sharp, Ben Summers and Owen Moffat - since the Pars returned to the Championship, whilst his most recent acquisition, Alex Jakubiak, made his debut at Queen's Park on Saturday after he agreed a deal until the end of the season having left Dundee earlier in the summer.

When asked if there was likely to be any further incomings, McPake said: "I wouldn't imagine so; we are happy.

"If everyone is fit, it's a very strong squad. You add Andrew Tod into that as well because he's been excellent. We certainly missed him last week, he'd have been another that could have been on for the start or would have come on to the game and helped us.

"Having him back, having Paul back, that beefs us up a little, but then you've still got the five that are out. You add them into the mix, it's a strong, competitive squad, in our opinion.

"We're done looking now."
