Glovers boss Gary Johnson has spoken for the first time since Bristol City made their official approach to Yeovil Town and has strongly implied that when a compensation figure is agreed between the two clubs that he will be accepting the position as the Ashton Gate first team boss.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Johnson admitted: "Both clubs are in talks. It's just a matter of negotiating compensation. I'm just waiting for Yeovil Town Football Club to tell me they have agreed compensation with Bristol City. That's what I'm waiting for."
Alot depends on the context of the question that Gary was asked by Sky Sports, however the word "just" strongly implies that it is the only matter delaying his unveiling as Bristol City's new boss.
The rumourmill strongly suggests an announcement of his departure from Huish Park is imminent, with the Yeovil boss believed to not have been present at today's training session and the likelihood is that even if things are not finalised today that assistant boss Steve Thompson will assume caretaker control of the side alongside Maurice O'Donnell and Stuart Housley for tomorrow's match against Port Vale.
The rumourmill also suggests that two well-known faces were seen at Huish Park today who are both former Football League managers currently out of work, although knowing the reliability of such information in times like these such things have to be taken with a pinch of salt. One thing that seems almost certain now is that Gary Johnson is now unlikely to manage another Yeovil Town game - a sudden sharp unexpected end to his four year reign at Huish Park.
