Yeovil Town striker Reuben Reid has given a hint that his future could lie with League Two side Plymouth Argyle next season, after he said that he had held initial talks with Pilgrims boss John Sheridan. Having scored 20 goals in 53 appearances for the Devon side during the 2013-14 season, including 16 goals in League Two, the 25 year old has enjoyed statistically speaking the most productive period of his career, and that has seen him win the club's Player Of The Season at Home Park.
Now destined to be released at the end of this season, having not played for the Glovers since New Year's Day 2013, Reid has been more forthcoming about his future than he was last week, telling the Plymouth Herald that it would be 'silly' if he didn't strongly consider an offer from the club that have taken him through the best part of an 18 month loan agreement:
"We have had a little chat and he (Sheridan) has asked me what I have got planned. I donít know what I have got planned. I will see what he wants to do after the Portsmouth game (on Saturday). I hope we can work something out that will keep me here because it would be silly for me not to be here next season. It would be good for my football development, with the support of the manager. Hopefully, next season we can challenge for automatic (promotion) or nailed on play-offs. I would love to be a part of that. It would be nice to achieve something."
Reid, who was not given a squad number or a position in the Glovers squad team photo for the 2013-14 season, has understandably said that he has not felt like he was on loan at Home Park, particularly because it was the club where he started his professional career:
"I donít feel like a loan player at all. Even when I came back here on loan last season, it was as if I had never left. Itís a club that is always going to be with me because itís where I made my Football League debut. I feel like Iím Plymouth Argyle, 100 per cent. The two seasons I have got goals, I have had a good run of games and not had any injuries. And I have had a manager who has put me on the pitch and given me a proper opportunity to perform."
Whilst on the subject of possible player movements, the Western Gazette have expanded upon last week's claims that linked three currently contracted Yeovil Town players with moves away from Huish Park. Having last week suggesting that Byron Webster (Leeds United), Luke Ayling (Brentford) and Kieffer Moore (Brighton and Hove Albion) had interest from other clubs, they've now thrown in the name of Ipswich Town, suggesting that the Suffolk club are chasing Webster and Ayling. Again, there are no sources named and until today there were no media reports from the Ipswich end mentioning either player. As per last week, any club interested in Ayling (Under 24) or Moore (under contract) would need to approach Yeovil Town if they have any concrete interest in either player.
