Downes Deal Close?
Alan Knill has said he believes a deal with Aaron Downes is now close, but he's less sure on Brian Saah at this stage.
Speaking to the Herald Express our manager explained that he'd had a good meeting with Downes recently and he believes the 28 year old will shortly take up the contract he has been offered.
'It's not signed and sealed yet, but I've had a good talk and I'm hopeful that he'll be with us next season. I'm not so sure about Brian, although ideally I'd like them both to sign.'
Saah has interest from Cheltenham Town, but Alan admits he does have Plan B's in place and has held discussions with other centre halves just in case either or both don't commit to a new deal.
