Whitney, who was speaking via the Express & Star, revealed that he has decided against offering the former Derry City man a permanent contract as he doesn't want to hamper the progress of fellow full-back Callum Cockerill-Mollett.

Jon said; "Patrick did really well but there was nothing I could really offer him. I’m going to be a reference for him because I liked him. His attitude was fantastic and maybe in the future our paths will cross.

"But I can’t get in the way of Callum Cockerill-Mollett. Patrick coming in would block his pathway. I had to be honest with the lad and say there was nothing here for him at the moment."
