Striker Mark McCammon back on Lincoln City radar
David Holdsworth could be set to offer Mark McCammon a cut price deal as Lincoln City's finances force the Imps boss to chase bargain basement signings.
The Echo can reveal the former Millwall and Gillingham forward is back at Sincil Bank having trained with the Imps over the last week.
Holdsworth is now contemplating making the ex-Doncaster forward part of the squad as he seeks to address a lack of strength in depth.
McCammon spent most of the summer preparing for a court case with his old club Gillingham in which he won £68,000 after his dismissal was ruled as unfair racial victimisation.

Now the 33-year-old is back in the hunt for a club although Holdsworth admits he is yet to make a decision.
"Myself and Mark have a good bond and he has been back with us for the last few days," he said.
"He's been training with us, but understandably he is not match fit given everything that went on during the summer.
"There was no way he could concentrate on getting fit while the court case was happening which must have been extremely draining for him.
"But I've kept in contact with him over the course of the summer and now the case is behind him, he is looking for a club.
"I had no hesistation in bringing him here and we will evaluate the situation.
"Everyone knows the financial situation, but we need to bolster the squad because in terms of depth I do think we are a couple of players short."
After revealing how Luke Daley is playing for nothing, Lincoln's lack of finances means Holdsworth is effectively looking for deals on goodwill.
The situation could improve should Josh Gowling leave before the end of the transfer window because he is currently the club's top earner.
Holdsworth said he is no position "to make financial demands" but said any help would be gratefully received.
"The board know my feelings on what I would like," he said.
"My concern is that once we start picking up knocks and suspensions then have we the strength in depth?
"I understand the financial situation, but looking for deals that are effectively based on goodwill is getting tougher and tougher.
"The club know I will work as hard as possible at finding those players, but it is not easy."
