Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he would like to see the loan spells of two of his short term acquisitions extended, after both impressed during their early stay at Huish Park. Queens Park Rangers defender/midfielder Max Ehmer has been a surprise success given that he had not played first team football before, whilst the experience of Southampton defensive midfielder Paul Wotton has been instrumental in developing a run of form that has seen Yeovil Town notch up four games without conceding a goal.
Ehmer and Wotton have played in the last three of those four matches, with two of those matches being wins, and so it's little surprise that the Yeovil boss is wanting to extend their deals, which currently run until the end of the month. Skivo has told today's Western Daily Press that he is in conversation with Queens Park Rangers (Ehmer) and Southampton (Wotton) about extending their deals, but has yet to put in a formal request:
"I am negotiating with people about maybe extending the two that I have already brought in. This will be ongoing with the (two parent) clubs, but you have got to wait for the right times to ask with them as well. We want to try and get something sooner rather than later with the boys and I will be having that conversation with both clubs very shortly. For me, there is a lot of work to be done and I need to make sure that I am on top of everything that is going on behind the scenes, while still focussing on the first team. There are one or two (other players) that I am waiting on (to come in as new signings), but we are waiting on the situations they are in with their current clubs."
Skiverton has recently indicated the other two positions he is seeking to fill in his squad are a target-man style striker to cover/rival Sam Williams along with an extra midfielder.
