MICHAEL Malcolm has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Hayes & Yeading after his release by Crawley Town.
The 25-year-old forward, who spent three months on loan with Garry Haylock's men, has opened the door for a quick return when the January transfer window opens.
“I would be interested, but it is up to the Hayes & Yeading management if they want to sign me,” Malcolm said. “There has been contact, but nothing concrete. I would like to come back to Hayes & Yeading if possible.”
However, boss Haylock may have to move quickly if he wants to land the ex-Stockport County professional as Malcolm revealed that two other clubs were already chasing his signature.
Malcolm's contract at Blue Square Bet Premier title-chasers Crawley was terminated by mutual consent last week.
And Malcolm says it hurt to be completely frozen out by Crawley boss Steve Evans.
“This season I would say that I was not given a fair crack of the whip, that's why I went on loan to Hayes & Yeading,” he added. “As soon as I went back I was told by the manager that he did not want me and you cannot stay where you are not wanted.”
Malcolm scored two goals in 17 league appearances for Hayes & Yeading, but he is not an out-and-out striker and prefers to play wide left or off a lone front-man.
Striker Liam Marum, who also spent a month on loan at Hayes & Yeading, was also released by Crawley at the same time as Malcolm and he could be another possible signing.
