Cowdenbeath manager Colin Cameron is hoping to clinch a loan signing from a Scottish Premier League club this week after deciding to make 23-year-old striker Zeph Thomas available for transfer.
“I am hoping we can get something tied up with a player before our game on Saturday at home to Morton,” said Cameron.
Thomas, who joined from Belgium club Royal Racing Montegnee in August and won an international call-up from Caribbean side St Kitts & Nevis the following month, is on his way out of Central Park after failing to make an impact in his four months with the Fifers.
Cameron added: “I signed him because I thought I saw potential but unfortunately it has not worked out for Zeph. He is not going to feature in my plans so rather than sitting here and not being involved it is better if we can find him another club.”
Meanwhile, Montrose have confirmed that striker Leighton McIntosh will remain on loan with them for the rest of the season from Dundee. The 19-year-old moved to Links Park at the same time as Martin Boyle went in the opposite direction and he has scored six times as the Gable Endies have moved into a play-off place.
Montrose manager Stuart Garden said: “Everyone is delighted at how the loan spell has worked so far.”
