AFC Telford striker Steve Thompson deal in the balance

AFC Telford United manager Andy Sinton is holding talks with striker Steve Thompson but says a decision on a deal remains in the balance.

Thompson makes an eight-hour round trip three times a week from his home in the North East to play for the Bucks.

But Sinton wants to be sure he can maintain that commitment for the whole season before re-signing him.

"I've got a little bit of an issue with the amount of travelling he has to do," Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"It's all OK during the summer when it's nice and sunny - it's the winter I'm thinking about. I just need to be convinced that both him and I are happy with that. It's still up in the air."

Before moving to the New Bucks Head, he made 17 appearances for Port Vale, 12 of them as a substitute, after joining from Middlesbrough in May 2008.

Telford are also holding talks with midfielder Phil Trainer and defender Adam Dugdale.
