SPANISH defender Sito Castro has every chance of being involved in the Blues end of season game at Plymouth even after being told he is going on the transfer list.

Sito, who signed a new two-year contract in January, has been put on a list circulated to all other clubs after Ipswich Town manager Joe Royle decided he would be surplus to requirements for next season.

But with Fabian Wilnis ruled out of Sunday's finale at Home Park with a cracked rib, and Matt Richards also falling foul of the injury curse after limping out of training, Sito could be named in the squad.

Owen Garvan is also a doubt with a jarred knee and Royle is reluctant to use Jimmy Juan, who has been told he can return to Monaco when his loan spell ends.

Academy player of the year Chris Casement is likely to start at right-back, and Scott Barron at left-back while Jay McEveley has also been told he will be going back to Blackburn and not be offered anything permanent by the Blues.

Jim Magilton and Kevin Horlock are also available but both will be out of contract in the summer and moving to pastures new.

Royle said: “I did say that I would like to use only those players who will be here next season without using those youngsters who are not quite ready yet but it doesn't look as if I will be allowed that luxury.

“We will see who we have fit on Saturday before deciding on the squad to take to Plymouth.

“We have decided to allow Sito to find another club and wait to see what comes up from him. Jimmy will go back to Monaco after we decided not to extend anything after his loan period.”

Ian Westlake and Sam Parkin will be in contention for a place in the squad if they show no signs of any fitness problems after their game in an Ipswich Town XI at Leiston last night.
