Talks will take place soon around Mitchell Rose‘s future as a Yeovil Town player, manager Darren Sarll has said.

The midfielder, who joined at the end of September, has not featured since picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-0 defeat at home to Notts County in his first game.

Speaking ahead of the weekend’s trip to Dagenham & Redbridge, Sarll said the 27-year-old was “very close” to being in contention.

He said: “Mitch is very close, so we need to sit down with Mitch and see where that goes from here, but we would love to have him.

“(To have) Mitch Rose (available) would be huge for us, because the depth of our midfield three (Matt Worthington, Dale Gorman, Josh Staunton) is those three midfield players.

“Alex Bradley will probably be used in a wider midfield formation, so we are short in (central) midfield.

The former Notts County and Grimsby player was a free agent when he joined ahead of the 2-1 defeat at Boreham Wood on September 25.

His signing is not without controversy after he was given a nine-month suspended prison sentence in July having been found guilty of an assault which left a 26-year-old woman with a fractured cheekbone.

Sarll also said that striker Reuben Reid could be back in training with the first-team on Monday and said he could even be in contention for a place on the substitutes’ bench in an upcoming game.

After Saturday’s trip to Dagenham, Yeovil travel to Bromley on Tuesday night before facing bottom-of-the-table Dover Athletic at Huish Park next weekend.

The manager said: “Reuben may train for Monday which would be magnificent for him, he turns up every game and you can see the torment in his game.

“Imagine going in to a game next week with Reid on the bench, then you have (Adi) Yussuf, (Joe) Quigley and Reid.
