Forgotten forward, Will Hoskins, is set to stay put just a fortnight after being 'transfer listed'.
The young striker was farmed out on-loan twice last season after arriving during the Premiership season will Lee Williamson. Until now it's not hard to argue that Williamson, the makeweight in the deal has been the better buy, but that could be about to change:
"Will will be staying here," confirmed Boothroyd. "He`s training with us in Austria, training very hard and he`s doing well.
"I`m looking for the likes of Will, Theo Robinson and Lionel Ainsworth to step up this year and for the older players to take more responsibility as this will be a tough season."
Aidy continued by prasing Hoskins capabilities in the final third:
"He`s a very clever player and he`ll open up defences,"
"He`s bright, got a bit to prove and I like them to be hungry. If he can stay clear of injury and have a good pre-season he will come right into the reckoning.
"I see him as player who can play in the little pockets and in from wide or just off a front man.
"When a game is stretched, he can get on the ball and pick out passes. He creates problems for defenders because he doesn`t stand still."
Here's to hoping that the new style of play will suit Will and that he'll finally be able to flourish in the Yellow Shirt!
