"We will discuss whether to make a transfer in Shane Larkin's absence at the board meeting on Monday. We're looking at who's available right now. If we find a player to fill in the gap for 2-3 months, we can evaluate it," Ataman told reporters.

The 56-year-old specialist also stated that Larkin is expected to return towards the end of November.
