YORK City boss Colin Walker has not ruled out making a move for former KitKat Crescent favourite Daniel McBreen.

The Minstermen manager could have the former Scunthorpe and St Johnstone striker in his sights, but admitted other names were currently ahead of the 30-year-old on his list of targets.

Walker said he had spoken to five strikers and seven midfield players as he stepped up his bid to strengthen his squad for the next Blue Square Premier campaign.

"You can't just have a Plan A'," he said. "You have to have other options if things don't come to fruition.

"Some of these players are in the league and some in the top five or six in the Conference."

While McBreen is not one of those names currently being considered, Walker has been alerted to the forward's release from St Johnstone and told The Press he was "not ruling anything in or out".

"I only got the information on Friday morning," he added. "The other strikers that I have spoken to are more up the list than he is - but I am not ruling anything in or out."

McBreen impressed during a loan spell at KitKat Crescent earlier in the year and was popular with supporters.

The Australian forward was recalled to Scunthorpe after only a month, but scored against Stafford and Farsley Celtic in his five appearances for York.

Good in the air and adept at holding up the ball and bringing team-mates into play, he recently found the net in St Johnstone's Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Rangers, but was not offered a contract by manager Derek McInnes.

Walker said he hoped to be able to begin announcing City's new arrivals in the very near future.
