DAN Jones has returned to the club after a one-month loan stint at AFC Fylde.
The 22-year-old, who arrived at Blundell Park during the summer, is set to be in the manager's plans next season.
Speaking at his pre match press conference, Marcus Bignot said: "Dan is back with us now and is going to be important for us moving forward.
"He's one of them that we a really looking forward to working with. Pre-season will give us an opportunity and put in a timetable where we can really help to develop these players.
"We need to recognise his position and work with him, in terms of where we see him playing for us."
