Tyrell Warren has returned to Salford City... but Craig Elliott admits things could have been very different.
The former Manchester United under 23s defender’s month-long loan spell at York Street concluded earlier this week.
Warren impressed manager Elliott in the three matches he played for the club, and had football not been suspended the Pilgrims would have been keen to extend his loan.
However, after signing Matt Challoner - who also plays in Warren’s right back position - and Jordan Nicholson, who are both yet to feature for the club, United chose not to add another player to the wage bill at a time when the club are inactive.
“He did a fantastic job for us,” Elliott said.
“If things were different then, to be honest, I would have liked to have kept him at the club.
"He’s a good player, good lad off the pitch as well.”
