Dartford are in talks to re-sign Harry Crawford.
The striker was at Princes Park on Tuesday night to watch the Darts’ friendly against Gillingham and manager Tony Burman confirmed afterwards he’s keen to bring the 22-year-old back to the club for a third spell.
Crawford scored 12 goals in 24 league appearances for the Darts in 2012-13 before leaving to join Barnet – then in League 2 – in January 2013. He returned briefly on loan less than a month later, playing four games and netting once.
Now, Crawford could be set to bolster Dartford’s strikeforce just a few weeks after Charlie Sheringham turned down his old club to sign for Ebbsfleet United.
Darts boss Tony Burman said: "I have been speaking to Harry. That’s been through the summer and then recently.
"I feel that we need another guy up front. I can’t just rely on Bradders (Tom Bradbrook), Pughy (Andy Pugh) and Danny Harris.
"We’ve got to have 16 or 17 players and yes, I’d like to take Harry back if things come off.
"There are one or two others we’re speaking to and hopefully that will happen. It’s a bit frustrating that it doesn’t happen quicker than what it’s happening but hopefully, in the next few days, I might get the answer of 'yes'.
"I’m getting positive vibes, that’s for sure, but I can’t announce yet that we’re doing this or we’re doing that. I’ve made some offers and we’ll have to see what happens."
