Holmes, who is 33 years old, has made 11 appearances for Northampton since his return there.

Curle has provided an update about his situation: “There’s ongoing conversations with Ricky. We’re mindful of the fact that we’ve got to create a number of places in the squad due to the 22-man limit.

“At the moment I’m not in a position to offer Ricky a contract as that would take up a place which we’d potentially need if another player becomes available.”

Holmes played for the League One side five years ago and scored 16 goals in 53 games for the club. He actually retired from the game before making a surprise return a couple of months ago.

He has racked up 510 appearances so far in his career and has been eager to make an impact with Keith Curle’s side this season. They are sat in 19th place in the table and are three points above the drop zone.

The experienced wide man has also previously played for the likes of Chelmsford City, Barnet, Portsmouth, Charlton Athletic, Sheffield United, Oxford United and Gillingham.

He will have to wait patiently over whether he can stay at Northampton this month. If not, he will have to weigh up his options as a free agent.
