Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has confirmed Tuesday night's reports that the Glovers were trying to tempt Nottingham Forest midfielder Arron Davies back to Huish Park as a replacement for the outgoing Danny Schofield.
The Glovers lost out to Brighton and Hove Albion, with the Sussex press indicating that Carlisle United were also interested, and Skiverton told BBC Somerset that at one stage he was close to bringing the former Southampton trainee back to Somerset:
"I'll make no secret of it now. We lost out on Arron Davies. We were very close to signing him, but Brighton came in at the last minute and snatched Arron off us. So that was going to be the ideal replacement at first, but that's now fallen through, so we've gone onto the backburner with another two or three (targets)."
In yesterday's news, Skiverton indicated that he had another prime target in focus, but that he was likely to have to wait for that one to come to fruition. Tonight, he offered one or two more clues:
"We've got our eye on a few. We're just waiting for one to clear up now. He's been involved with the (parent club's) first team, so it's been a little bit difficult to get him. Hopefully it will be a little bit clearer within a week or two, and then we'll have that loan person on board."
The BBC Somerset report suggested the player was from a Championship club - we're not sure at this stage whether that was conjecture on their behalf or whether Skiverton was explicit about that.
