Mellon Pleased With Progress So Far

Mellon Pleased With Progress So Far

Manager Micky Mellon has said he's been delighted with our transfer progress so far, and he's also revealed he has a 'gentleman's agreement' with another player that he hopes we can announce in the next few days.

Speaking to the Official Site our new gaffer explained.

'We had all these targets from pretty much the first week that I came into the building. It's been a long process on some of them but others we have got done quicker.'

As for the prospective new target, he says.

'We've got a gentleman's agreement on another that we hope's going to happen in the next few days. How strong a gentleman's agreement is these days is up to whoever the two gentlemen are, but I trust that we've agreed on something.'

Mellon isn't finished yet though as he adds that although he's pleased with where we are, and he feels we are in a much better position compared to where we first took the job, he's knows he still wants to add further quality to the group before the season kicks off and that's what he'll be working towards.

We are also waiting on Connor Goldson and Tom Bradshaw when it comes to the contract offers they have been given, and although Mellon admits he's yet to meet Bradshaw, he was very pleased with the chat he had with Goldson.

'Connor came to see me and I had a really good conversation with him and his agent, speaking about his situation moving forward. He was happy with the conversation we had and I told him how I would like to manage him and coach him, how I believed I could make him better, what areas we believe we could make him better in.'

Mellon says the meeting ended with them shaking hands and he feels both sides were very happy with that was said.

'I told him to enjoy the rest of his summer and I'm expecting to see him at pre season training.'

As for Bradshaw, Mellon added.

'He's still on holiday - he's having the longest holiday ever known to man! It's a situation that I've not been able to be a part of as yet. Tom is again a young player who I would like to think would want to be part of this project after what happened last season. I would love to be able to think that he would want to come back and play a part in resurrecting the football club if you like from what happened last season and what part he played in that. I haven't had the chance to speak to him but he is a lad I would like to be part of what we do.'
