The 22-year-old, who has been training with Dean Saunders' squad, could be involved in Saturday's home game with Shrewsbury.

York-born Woods started his career at Leeds and was involved in a controversial switch to Chelsea as a 16-year-old with fellow Elland Road youngsters Tom Taiwo and Danny Rose.

Leeds accused Chelsea of tapping up the trio, which led to the London club paying a reported £5million compensation in an out-of-court settlement.

Woods was a regular for Chelsea's reserves and although he became one of their youngest first-team players when making his debut against Macclesfield in an FA Cup tie in 2007, he never made a league appearance and was released at the end of the 2010/11 season.

He joined Yeovil on a non-contract basis in February 2012, but failed to win a permanent deal at Huish Park.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
