Speculation in Lincolnshire is suggesting that Yeovil Town winger Billy Gibson may be released by the club. The former Watford academy player has slowly clocked up 13 appearances during the 18 months that he's been at Huish Park, although has only one league start to his name - one day after his 21st birthday.
Since October 22nd, Gibson has managed just eight minutes of first team football, and has not even made the bench during 2012. He last featured as a late substitute in the FA Cup Second Round Replay match against Fleetwood Town.
The Lincolnshire Echo suggests that the right-winger is a target for Conference National side Lincoln City, who were seen as short of attacking players, even before today's decision to release former Glover Gavin McCallum. Their paper claims that manager David Holdsworth is waiting to see if Yeovil Town choose to release Gibson before they consider a move:
"Billy Gibson, a winger at Yeovil, is also being monitored with speculation mounting that he is set to become a free agent. The former Watford player, who made one appearance for the Hornets, has figured 13 times for the Glovers in a two-season spell."
With today (Tuesday) being Transfer Deadline Day, Gibson would need to come off Yeovil's books by the time the window closes for the Imps to be able to sign him up permanently.
According to the BBC Sport website, the Transfer Window closes at 11.00p.m. on Tuesday night for all English divisions, and the Scottish Premier League, with the Scottish Football League keeping matters hanging on for another hour. At present, we're not aware of any definitive plans by Yeovil Town to sign up any new players, although boss Gary Johnson has made it clear that he does want to improve his squad by three players - whether that will happen today or during the loan transfer window will depend on whether any of Gary's legendary 'spinning plates' drop.
