HOGAN Ephraim said he's been training with Wanderers to stay fit - and won't necessarily be signing permanently at Adams Park.

The forward was a former team mate of Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth at QPR but is currently without a club after released by the Hoops in the summer.

He was the star turn as he impressed with his skill and work rate in playing the full 90 minutes for Blues in their 2-2 draw with Chesham United last night.

But after the game the 26-year-old Tweeted: "Just to clear things up, an old friend Gaz Ainsworth is doing me a big favour getting me as fit and sharp as possible. My footballing future is a few weeks away from getting sorted - so when's there's news on that I'll update you."

Ephraim, who had spells on loan at Peterborough United and Toronto last season, was one of three trialists to be fielded by Wanderers at The Meadow.

Will Hudson, a former pupil at Dr Challoner's Grammar School who has been playing college football in the USA, was given an extended run-out in midfield and ex West Ham defender Callum Driver was given another chance to stake a claim after making a late substitute appearance against Chelsea last week.

Ainsworth was tight-lipped over either player's future with Wanderers but said he liked what he saw from them against Chesham.

He said: "There's a couple of players tonight who looked very comfortable out there.

"I keep my cards close to my chest with regards trialists coming in but they raised the level a little bit."
