Further to yesterday's story concerning a mystery player that manager Russell Slade was looking to bring in from a Premiership club on loan, it looks like that player could well be Liverpool midfielder Lee Peltier.
The 20 year old was born in Toxteth, Liverpool on December 11th 1986, initially playing his football for St Patricks RC Primary School before being spotted by Anfield scouts and moving into their Academy structure. Last season he played in three of Liverpool's Carling Cup matches as well as a Champions League match against Galatasaray. During the last two months of last season, he went on loan to Championship side Hull City where he made a further seven appearances.
Yeovil Town face competition from League Two side Chester City, where Chairman Stephen Vaughan has declared both his and Yeovil's interest:
"We are hopeful of attracting Lee to Chester for a temporary spell, we know we face competition from Yeovil Town for his signature, but hopefully our location and the ambition we all have at the club, will tip his decision in our favour."
Peltier is a perfect match for Russell Slade's description of his target, as he played right-back for Liverpool in their Carling Cup win against Reading in October 2006 as well as in their Champions League match against Galatasaray. However, his more usual position in the squad is in central midfield. He is contracted at Anfield until June 2008.
Whilst Yeovil can easily trump the "ambition" Vaughan speaks of given their respective league positions, much will come down to whether Peltier prefers a club close to his native home, or whether he wants to spread his wings a bit and play at a higher level.
