Leeds United have so far fallen short of bringing in top transfer targets Abel Hernandez and Matej Vydra.
The only good news is that no other club has snapped them up either, giving fans a slither of hope that their hopes may yet be fulfilled.
Hernandez is currently a free agent, yet to agree a deal with any club, 12 days after his contract with Hull City expired.
It is a surprising situation for a player who scored eight goals in 10 games at the end of last season.
Hernandez is staying positive, sending a message on Twitter illustrating his upbeat mood by flashing a big smile.
His message drew responses from Leeds fans, some of who urged him to sign while others cracked jokes.
The latest club interested are AEK Athens, report In AEK.
Here is a look at how Leeds fans responded to Hernandez...
