Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton says that he regards the recapture of midfield playmaker Gavin Williams as a 'real coup'. The 30 year old has agreed to rejoin the Glovers for a fourth spell, subject to a medical, on July 1st, returning to a club where he has already made 130 appearances for, since making his debut back in August 2002.
Last year, he was a Bristol City player, when he arrived on a three month loan deal during the first half of the 2010-11 season. That spell saw him score just once in twelve appearances, and there were occasions when the Welshman's fitness was in doubt due to persistent ankle problems. Skiverton told BBC Somerset that he recognised that he didn't see the best out of Williams that time round, but said he still regarded him as one of the best players at League One level:
"I think it's a bit of unfinished business. He came here in the first half of last season and was trying to play through an injury, and it didn't really work out. We didn't really see the best of him. But for us to be able to get him back on a contract is a real coup. On his day, and the way that we're going to get him, and the way that we're going to work with him, he is definitely one of the most talented players in this division."
Yesterday, Skiverton spoke of being on the edge of agreeing several signings. Although he clearly won't be naming any names before those deals are concluded, he gave an idea of what sort of players he was going after:
"They all like to get it down. There's a couple there with good energy. There's a striker out there at the moment, who has got electric pace. For me, it's an exciting time. I put the jigsaw together, along with Martyn Starnes, who looks at the budget. We've got a list of targets as long as your arm, and we're going through them."
