BEN Joyce could be on his way back to the Bob Lucas Stadium, according to Ter-ras’ boss Brendon King.

The 22-year-old striker, who left Weymouth for Kettering Town in March, has expressed a wish to return to the club but the deal is currently on hold for the time being due to family commitments.

King, who was scheduled to finalise deals with former Exeter City duo Danny Clay and Barry McConnell last night, told Echosport: “I have been talking to Ben for a few weeks now and he wants to come back to the club.

“At the moment he has other issues to deal with away from football but hopefully we can strike a deal with him as well.

“He wants to move further south and there is no doubt he would be another great addition for us.

“I am also in advanced talks with two other players but for obvious reasons I don’t want to reveal anything more on that at this stage.”

Joyce appears to be a potential replacement for Warren Byerley, whose expected move to Kettering Town seems to be edging closer to completion.

The switch has stalled over the past week due to a £2,000 loan the player owes the Terras for a recent knee operation but it now looks like steps are being taken to resolve that issue.

Weymouth chairman Nigel Biddlecombe added: “George Rolls has sent us an offer of payment that is being considered and a response will be made by the weekend. However, there are other moves afoot that could cause that to be irrelevant.”
