HEREFORD United could be closing in on another new signing.

Director of Football Graham Turner says he is having talks with a left-back who played for a Football League club last season.

Turner said there is a possibility that a deal could be completed in time for United's first pre-season friendly at Evesham United on Monday. He said: "There is a chance but I am not over-optimistic."

The United boss is also casting his eyes over a young midfielder who was recently released by a Premiership club.

Turner added: "I am looking for a bit more experience and size, but if he fits the bill we will take him."
