Winger Andy Welsh keen to stay on at improving Yeovil

Winger Andy Welsh is set for further talks with manager Terry Skiverton on a new deal and hopes to finalise his future at Yeovil within the month.

Welsh, 27, has been at Town for three seasons and is keen on a new contract.

He told BBC Somerset: "I'm enjoying my time here. We'll see what's on offer and hopefully we can get a deal done.

"If we can hold on to everyone that finished the season and add a bit more I'm sure the fans will be coming back to watch at Huish Park next year."

Yeovil ended the campaign with a run of six games unbeaten in which Welsh scored two goals to take his tally for the season to five.

"I always have the aim of having the most assists at the football club and chipping in with goals and I bettered what I did last year and bought more to the table for the gaffer to think about," he added.

That run of results helped the Glovers to a respectable 14th-placed finish in League One after being haunted by the threat of relegation at the turn of the year and Welsh believes the club can kick on in the future.

Striker Dean Bowditch is also out of contract, but Welsh is confident the 15-goal man will sign a new deal and hopes the club can tie Bristol City goalkeeper Stephen Henderson, Yeovil's player of the season, to another loan spell during the summer.

"If you reach for the moon you might hit the stars," said Welsh. "You never know. Why not reach for a top position and you might hit the play-offs.

"The likes of Dean and Hendo are the players we want to keep. We want to build and it's important for the club now to show where they want to go and keep the likes of these players, show to the fans they're building a good squad and push on."
