Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson appears to have concluded his transfer dealings for the start of the 2012-13 season, despite losing his last remaining trialist to another club during the week. Centre-back Aaron Downes took up a firm offer from League Two side Torquay United, rather than hope that the Glovers might offer him a deal at Huish Park.
This week's Western Gazette states that the club "are unlikely to add further fresh blood to their ranks before the start of the League One campaign" and that Johnson "does not expect to see any further players coming into Huish Park".
Hence barring injuries, the current list of sixteen permanent signings and two six month loanees will form the basis of the club's 2012-13 plans. As for Downes, Johnson told the paper he could see why the former Chesterfield player should accept the offer he had from the Gulls:
"He received an offer from Torquay which we thought he should accept. We wish him all the best and didn't want to stand in his way of first-team football. I don't think we will be necessarily looking for another defender. I think our current centre-back options are pretty good. For anyone to come in it would have to be a real coup."
