PAOLO Di Canio has revealed that trialist goalkeeper Iain Turner will not be offered a contract and has ended his training spell with the club.

After coming on as a substitute against Salisbury City on Friday night, the manager says that he will no long be pursuing the former Preston stopper. 

"We have decided to move on," Di Canio told the media on Tuesday lunchtime. "He played with Bristol Rovers the day after Salisbury and he asked what was our intention in terms of to keep him or not. 

"To be honest I wasn’t sure whether I should decide in one day or two days. I said to him that he can have the opportunity to negotiate with them because it's not fair to keep him and promise something that you can’t maintain."
