Barnsley manager Simon Davey has confirmed that Yeovil Town have had a bid for midfielder Sam Togwell accepted by the Championship side. However, he has said that Togwell will only move to Huish Park if the Glovers can sell another member of their already depleted first team squad.
Togwell travelled south to Somerset yesterday (see yesterday's news) for advanced talks but Davey has said that the move may suffer some delays at the Yeovil end. Speaking to their official site he said:
"Sam looks like he will go to Yeovil. He is due to have talks with them but it all hinges on one of their players moving out. If that deal happens then I would expect Sam to move to Yeovil later this week."
The big concern for Glovers fans is that even with just 17 contracted players - including two that manager Russell Slade has referred to as 'scholars' rather than full-blown first-teamers - the Glovers squad will need to be cut yet again to fit Togwell into the line-up, despite 16 personnel having already left Huish Park this summer with only six replacements.
Given the position Togwell occupies - and it should be stressed that this is only speculative - it would imply that midfielder Marc Bircham would be the player that is likely to be sold to pave the way for Togwell's arrival. There have been whisperings of Millwall holding an interest for the Londoner, who is based in Hemel Hempstead. In all other positions, the Glovers are already significantly short of numbers, or feature players that have only just arrived at the club.
