All Quiet On Potential Young Deal

It is looking more and more unlikely that Ton trialist Darren Young has earned a deal at Cappielow.

The 32-year-old central midfielder featured in three trial matches for Morton - appearing as a substitute against Cowdenbeath and starting matches against Raith Rovers and Dunfermline - and impressed in the most recent win against the Pars.

However, Saturday's appearance was the final outing which he could make while listed as a trialist. Young would now have to be offered a contract to play for the club again and the fact that it is now Thursday suggests that a contract offer might not be forthcoming.

In an interview for the Greenock Telegraph, Darren told me that despite Allan Moore's early statement that he had no money to sign him, he was still hopeful of getting a deal.

He said: “I’m not sure if there’s the chance of a deal. I’ve come here for a chance to get my fitness up, but I’ll speak to Allan Moore about it during the week and hopefully there is something there."

According to those in hosptitality after Saturday's match against Dunfermline, Moore stated that he'd have to speak to the chairman about signing Young, but that Douglas Rae was less than enthusiastic about a deal.

And, with time getting on, it looks like the chairman has maybe decided that there just isn't the money to sign Young.
