Dion Pereira will not be returning to Yeovil Town having returned to his parent club  Luton Town, according to Glovers’ boss Darren Sarll.

The winger played in the 2-0 defeat against Notts County earlier this month and was described as being “massively fatigued” to the extent he returned to Kenilworth Road for treatment.

Asked by Gloverscast roving reporter Ben Barrett ahead of the trip to Grimsby this weekend, Sarll said: “I’m not sure we’ll see Dion again, I think he will stay at Luton.

Following the 22-year-old’s return, Luton manager and Yeovil old boy, Nathan Jones, said Pereira picked up “a slight injury” – whichever it was, that seems to be the last we’ll see of him.

The manager also updated on loan agreements for defender Dan Moss, who he sounded confident would be staying on when his current youth loan expires next month.

However, he said the deals for striker Ben Seymour and defender Jordan Dyer would depend on the needs of their parent club, Exeter City. The pair joined on a one-month loan at the end of September.

Sarll said: “I phoned Millwall for Dan Moss after one week of him starting with us, so there will be a strong possibility of him staying with us.

“That is a discussion we are having, but I would like to think he will stay with us. He can’t go in to the League before the window, so I would like to think he’ll be with us until January.

“Because of the nature of (Ben) Seymour and Jordan (Dyer)’s loan that will go right to the wire, and I think Matt Taylor (the Exeter City boss) will have that discussion about whether he needs them back.

Going in to the match at top-of-the-table Grimsby on Saturday, the manager said he expected to be without defenders Luke Wilkinson, Morgan Williams and Alex Bradley.

He said Wilkinson and Bradley “could be okay” for next Tuesday’s home game with Woking, but said they were taking extra precautions with Williams.

The boss added: “Morgan is a weird one because his knee rocked when he landed so we are having to be careful with him.”
