No sooner do we get some good news on Paul Warne then some bad news comes following in close behind it. Yesterday, reports in the Western Gazette suggested that Warne was ready to sign a new contract at Huish Park, despite a likely drop in wages. However, this morning's BBC Somerset sports bulletin states that they believe Warne has been told by the club that there is no longer a contract on the table for him to sign, and that therefore if true he will become a free agent.
There's no firm confirmation or quotes from any Yeovil Town officials, but this has echoes of last summer's contract negotiations concerning Marcus Stewart where the striker claimed the club had done a u-turn on the contract that was previously on offer to him.
The Western Daily Press also quote manager Terry Skiverton as saying that he has had little contact with goalkeeper Josh Wagenaar over whether he is likely to sign a new contract with Yeovil Town. Wagenaar was one of the earlier players to get a new deal on the table, but is believed to have spent most of the summer in North America and is likely to spent most of July on international duty with Canada. Whether he will still be a Yeovil Town player at that point is questionable as it's not clear if his contract offer has an expiry date against it. Skiverton told the paper:
"We haven't had much dialogue with Josh so we don't know where we stand. The fact that he has been called up by Canada doesn't help so we need to speak to Josh in the next few days. At the end of the day we don't want to go into pre-season without a goalkeeper so we need to get things sorted."
