Patterson hopes to seal Elliott deal

Former Northern Ireland winger Stuart Elliott is poised for a return to Irish Premiership side Glentoran - if the cash-strapped Belfast club can afford him.

Elliott, 34, has been out of football for more than a year after leaving Hamilton Academical when they were in the Scottish Premier in 2010.

Glentoran manager Eddier Patterson said funds from Darren Boyce's departure to Coleraine could pave the way for Elliott's return to the Oval.
