Chairman Confirms Transfers

"It's been arranged for Mike Price to have a week's trial with Bournemouth and during that time he'll play in a reserve game for them. Depending on how things go we'll then take the issue from there," said Pearson.

He continued: "As regards Neil Mann, Scarborough are keen to take him on loan but whether or not that happens depends on his fitness.
"Obviously we feel that it would in Neil's benefit to start playing some games."

A move to the Conference side looks likely for the left-winger, who has said of his need to play first-team football.

Price meanwhile is also likely to favour a move. He impressed Brian Little into signing him following a trial spell, and will now be looking to do the same at Dean Court after failing to put himself in the first team frame at City. The Welshman is expected to play in the Cherries' Reserves at Cambridge on Monday.

Pearson also gave an update regarding Jamaican duo Theodore Whitmore and Ian Goodison: "I can confirm that both Theo and Ian have been offered the best deals we can give them and we're now awaiting a response from their agent. Hopefully we will have an answer within the next fortnight."
