As prove that you shouldn't take all the rumours you read too seriously, it looks like any interest Yeovil Town may have had in former Hartlepool United defender Gary Liddle is about to be proven irrelevant. Back on May 23rd, the Hartlepool Mail reported the Glovers as one of a number of clubs interested in taking the former Middlesbrough trainee on a contract, after he turned down a chance to extend his six years at Victoria Park.
This afternoon, BBC Radio Nottingham - via the BBC Sport website - report that the 25 year old has agreed a deal with fellow League One side Notts County and is shortly expected to become their first signing of the summer. Hence this one can be pretty much considered to be a dead duck. In fairness to the Hartlepool Mail, the Magpies were one of the clubs they listed as being interested in the defender.
Meanwhile those who put faith in the Football Rumours website as well as the growing number of Twitter accounts claiming to carry transfer rumours, can also put a big cross against a couple of other player names that have been listed by those parties.
Former Coventry City striker Freddie Eastwood, former Cardiff City striker Jon Parkin, Chesterfield full-back Nathan Smith and Southampton full-back Ryan Dickson are all ruled out by manager Gary Johnson in a Glovers Player interview today, with only the latter player providing some possible interest to the Glovers boss. Even in Dickson's case wage would rule out any chances of taking him to Huish Park on a permanent basis at present.
