Indy Aujla remains very much in Boston United’s plans.
Manager Dennis Greene says he is still interested in bringing the midfielder to the club.
However, the situation has stalled due to the former Forest Green Rovers man suffering an injury.
“We’re still looking at him but he’s been injured,” Greene told The Standard.
“We can’t even get him on the training pitch at the moment.
“They don’t get paid any money in pre-season, so it’s a long way for him to travel from Bradford just to watch.
“He wants to play, but he’s just not fit enough to.
“The interest is there with Indy, we just need him fit.”
Aujla has impressed in pre-season friendlies for United, but he has sat out the past three contests, including Saturday’s 2-0 Lincs Senior Cup defeat to Gainsborough Trinity.
However, the manager has previously admitted that he may need to tinker with his squad in order to make room in the budget for the player to link up fully.
Despite Boston’s first competitive contest of the new campaign ending with a loss, Greene still has plenty of faith that his side can succeed.
He added: “They’ll bounce back. This group is a strong group and they just need to get it right.
“There are eight new players in that group and we’ve only been together for four weeks, so we might not win the league in the first three weeks, but we will get better.
“I believe in the group and I think we’ll have a good season.”
