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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
