Wilson Kneeshaw could return to Darlington and will be offered the chance to train with his hometown club, The Northern Echo say.

The striker sustained a long-term injury towards the of last season, ruling him out until midway through 2019-20 meaning considering whether to offer a deal was never an option for Quakers boss Alun Armstrong.

However, Armstrong does foresee Kneeshaw returning to Blackwell Meadows at some point.

He said: “I’ll speak to Wilson, but he’s going to be out long-term because he ruptured his achilles. I did that and it changes your game.

“I did it when I was at Middlesbrough when we’d just got promoted to the Premier League and it’s a tough one to come back from, you keep hitting brick walls.

“It could be a six-month minimum for Wilson before he gets back to playing, and then you’ve got to get your match fitness.”
