"He's only been in speedway a short time so we might have to persevere for a bit, but we certainly see something in him," he said.
"I can see potential in him and I'm hoping he can fulfil that when he settles in and starts riding on a regular basis.
"When he rode for me against Wolverhampton I liked his attitude and approach to everything. From what I've seen and the feedback I've had, I've got a good feel about him. He's one for the future."
