Blair Yule has revealed that he had an offer of a potential two year deal at Inverness which he rejected.
Yule signed for Arbroath in order to focus on his job full-time and to play football at part-time level.
He was offered a two year deal provisionally by Brian Rice and Scott Kellacher and new boss John Robertson was set to approve the deal.
Yule said to the Dundee Courier “There was an offer from Inverness, but the uncertainty with the managerial change meant things dwindled away.
“There was an offer, but it was prior to the new manager coming in. He wanted to have a look at me first because he hadn’t seen me play, which was understandable.
“They had spoken about going up for a trial, but I was at the stage where I just wanted to get things sorted out.
“The deal at Inverness might not have worked out, and the position I’ve got with my job, I wasn’t sure if that was going to be available in a year or two’s time.
“It would been a very big gamble to take. Weighing up all the options, I feel I’ve done the right thing and I can concentrate on my full-time job, as well as playing part-time football which is what I’ve always done anyway.”
Yule was also offered a trial at fellow Championship club Dundee United.
