All three were offered new contracts for the coming campaign but as of yet none have signed, and the clock may have run out on their chances.

Sambou has been at Clarence Park for the last two seasons while both David Moyo and Ben Wyatt impressed after joining last summer, Moyo becoming the club's top scorer while Wyatt claimed an unprecedented four player of the month awards as well as the player of the season crown.

Allinson said: "Ben and Solomon were both offered re-engagement terms and didn't take us up on them.

"Ben has been training with us but it's something we've got to sit down and discuss further. I was conscious he may come back from his holiday and not sign for us so I signed Ollie Sprague.
