His sole first team appearance came in Sam Allardyce’s final game, the 2-2 draw with Watford at the end of the 2015-16 campaign but he hasn’t played since.

The Echo understands nothing is imminent but the winger would be allowed to leave on loan.

Dan Wright recently joined South Shields on a 28-youth loan while Andrew Nelson is playing for Scottish side Falkirk.
