The Spaniard, who spent four years with Hearts before signing for Alaves in 2011, is a free agent following a spell in Finland with Honka.

Despite Thistle's attempts to lure the player back to Scotland, Palazuelos looks likely to join Championship side Yeovil.

Archibald said: "We had a chat with him but he couldn't do anything about it. He decided to go elsewhere."

Meanwhile, Archibald will not be attempting a first-team return against Motherwell on Saturday after playing for the U20s in a 2-2 draw with St Johnstone.

The 36-year-old defender said: "It was good to get back out there. I think it was the first time in a year.

"We had a wee bit of a crisis with our centre-halves in the 20s. I just thought I would help them out.

"I don't know if I really helped them out to be honest, I think I was to blame for two goals."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
