Although he isn't a fan of loaning players, Poyet admitted that he has now been forced into action and hopes to bring a new player in before Tuesday's match against Barnsley.
"I have to," he said. "I'm not a fan of the loan system, but I'm not going to not use it because I don't like it.
"I was thinking we needed a striker, maybe we need two, but I need a striker now. I cannot wait even until Tuesday.
"I was thinking of having a nice trip back on the bus but I think I'm going to be on the phone calling people and trying to sort it out now, so maybe he can train with us tomorrow or Monday."
