According to reports, Town are one of a number of clubs chasing Bury winger, Danny Mayor.

The winger, 28, is out of contract with Bury and due to the financial side of the club, no deal appears to be on the table.

Mayor has already been down to Plymouth, with his old boss Ryan Lowe interested in the winger, alongside Town and Tranmere Rovers.

The Preston youth product is due to visit another club based outside the North West today.

On departing Bury, Mayor says he is devastated: “When a bid comes in and you leave to further your career, that’s one thing, but I’ve had to leave because the club’s given me no option,” he said.

“They haven’t offered me a deal, they don’t look like they’re going to, and they don’t look like they want to pay any of the players. It’s a mess.

“I’ve loved it there so it’s a sad way to end. I’m devastated.”

“I’ve left it as long as I could, hoping to speak to the club and get it sorted, but I’ve heard nothing,” Mayor added.

“Everyone knows I’ve just had a kid, it’s close to home and I love the club so it would’ve been perfect for me.

“But it’s got to the point where I have to start looking after myself because I haven’t been paid for three months.

“It’s a job and I’ve got to start earning wages to pay for my family.

“Teams are going back for pre-season now so I’ve got to look for a club and look forward to next season.”

Mayor, who was voted in League Two Team of the Year last season, started his career at Preston North End, making 64 appearances before moving to Sheffield Wednesday in 2012. That move proved unsuccessful with Major starting only one game and appearing a further eight times from the bench.

A loan spell at Southend followed by a similar spell at Bury which was made permanent in 2014.

In his six years with Bury, including his loan season, Mayor made 212 starts and 22 sub appearances, scoring 36 goals.

Town are very much in the market for a wide man, with Gwion Edwards our only out and out winger. Freddie Sears, Jack Lankester and Alan Judge can all operate on the flanks but primarily see their best position elsewhere.

Meanwhile, former Blue Elliot Hewitt has joined League Two Grimsby Town on a two-year deal having left Notts County following their relegation to the National League.
