Transfer activity unlikely at U's ahead of deadline
The U's boss, who signed Gavin Massey from Championship side Watford last week, is not expecting to sign any new players, before the deadline.
And he is not anticipating any of his players leaving the U's.
Ward said: “We signed Gavin Massey last week and I’m not one who goes right down to the wire, unless I’m forced into it.
“At the moment I’m not - we’ve got people available and a decent squad.
“I haven’t had an enquiry for either Anthony Wordsworth or Magnus Okuonghae - or any player really.
“The chance would have been in the summer.
“Magnus was out of contract but chose to stay at this football club and we received no offers for Anthony."
