Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has admitted that negotiations between the Glovers and midfielder Gary Roberts were going more slowly than he hoped they would be. Reports from the Crewe end suggested that as far as the Gresty Road club was concerned, Roberts would be a Yeovil player by Wednesday morning, but Russell warned that there was still the matter of personal terms to sort out between the Glovers and Roberts himself.
Negotiations are ongoing, but Russell told BBC Somerset of a 'deadlock' that was occurring at present between both parties that would need to be overcome before there was any chance of the 21 year old signing on the dotted line:
"I think there is a bit of a deadlock situation at the moment. So we are just going to have to wait and see. Hopefully it does get resolved and that he does sign, because I know the boy does want to stay here. I want him here, and I'm sure that most of the fans will want him, having seen what they've seen. So, we'd love him to stay and let's hope that we can resolve the situation sooner rather than later. What you don't want is to have it going on and have him putting in the performances that he has been putting in recently and then have him attracting other clubs come the January window."
