BRENDON King is confident he has landed his first signing of the summer but is still refusing to identify the experienced midfielder just in case it comes back to bite him.

The mystery player agreed terms with the Terras over the weekend and is scheduled to sign in just over a week’s time when he returns from holiday.

King told Echosport: “We sent the player in question a copy of his contract and on Saturday he gave me his word he would sign it when he gets back next week.

“He agreed to all the terms and said he was looking forward to the new challenge but for obvious reasons I am not going to name him yet until he signs on the dotted line.

“Obviously I would have liked to have got it all rubberstamped over the weekend but unfortunately due to his location it was out of the question.”

Meanwhile, Warren Byerley’s future still remains up in the air with King refusing to discount the possibility of a dramatic U-turn.

The 27-year-old striker told Weymouth officials he was leaving for Kettering Town last week after verbally agreeing a £600-a-week contract with ex-Terras’ chairman George Rolls.

However, many people are expecting the deal to fall through.

King added: “For Warren’s sake I hope it comes off but there is a chance he could end up with egg on his face.

“Some people down here are very unhappy with the way he has gone about things but I cannot discount the chance of him coming back at some point simply because of his football record.

“No matter what anyone thinks of his recent actions, no one can deny that over the past two years he has given a lot to this club. “However, there are a lot of people feeling hurt at the moment and what has happened will not be easily forgotten, which is something that would have to be considered if such a situation occurs.”
