Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "The clubs are still talking and I’ve been talking to Scott - but he is not in the building. There are no guarantees at this stage. He wants to come back. We want to keep him. But there a lot of factors to making a signing. We are hopeful though we will get Lairdy in for the second half of the season."
