What puzzles me is Keates saying in the Leader that a deal was close and it was a case of ironing out a few details. It sounds to me like he was never actually that close and Gateshead have offered a package we weren't going to match.

Seems like a bit of inexperience on DK's part in terms of expectation management. As a young manager I think he'll have learnt a lesson and will probably be a bit more cautious commenting on potential signings next time.
I wonder how key having someone like Barry Horne was to help out with signing players
