Wes Thomas' Cheltenham future appears no closer to being resolved as the season approaches its finale.

The club's 19-goal leading scorer arrived on a one-year deal from Dagenham last summer but, despite the best efforts of Town to extend Thomas`s contract, it is no secret the Londoner is keen to be closer to his partner as she expects their first child in the capital.

Cheltenham manager Mark Yates told the club`s official website: "Wesley Thomas wants to keep his options open which he is entitled to do, but I would like to stress the club has made every effort to make him sign."


Yates has also stressed his desire to see on-loan Portsmouth midfielder Marlon Pack remain at Whaddon Road, adding: "I`ve been speaking to Marlon over the past couple of weeks as well and he`s just changed his representatives so hopefully we can get something done."

The Robins have faltered badly after a promising first half to the season, and Yates added: "There are lessons to be learnt by all of us and we have to make sure we have a couple more bodies in next season because I believe that has been a factor this season."
