DANNY Holmes says he will be "speaking to the board" at Wimborne Town to discuss the possibility of Luke Holmes returning to the club.

The midfielder left Magpies only last month to join Southern League South rivals Salisbury, having previously turned down their approaches on numerous occasions. But he has already left Steve Claridge's side with Salisbury announcing the news on Friday.

Asked if there was a chance Magpies could make a move for their former player, Danny Holmes told Radio Wimborne: "I'll certainly be speaking to the board on that matter, seeing what they think.

"But I'm quite sure that they would have him back with open arms.

"He's been here a couple of times before, so he'd slot in quite nicely I would've thought.

"That's something we've got to have a look at and maybe address this week."

Discussing Holmes's departure from Salisbury, Claridge said: "He has decided that the environment with regard to the expectation and pressure he found himself in meant he felt he wasn't strong enough to deal with that.

"He doesn't feel mentally strong enough for this sort of challenge."

Danny Holmes added: "I was kind of aware that something was going on. Obviously I'm his uncle, but he's well aware of what I think of him.

"He's a fantastic player. On his day he can be one of the best in the league I believe, on the ball.

"But what I do believe is he's got to be happy in himself."
