Allen announces huge clear-out of players at Chesterfield FC

Chesterfield manager Martin Allen has announced that no less than seven players are currently available for transfer or loan at the Proact Stadium.

The club have failed to win a league game since August, and the Spireites are currently in the national league drop zone facing a 3rd successive relegation.

Allen released the following statement on the club's website: "This morning I spoke to a number of players regarding their future at our club.

"Clearly, changes need to be made as we have not won enough points and to be honest, I'm fed up of hearing we played well and that it was a good performance, only to draw.

"Kyel Reid, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Zavon Hines all live down in London and it's best for them and for us to find clubs in the London area. I am not going into further details as to why I've had to make this decision.

"Shwan Jalal has been made available for loan. Now he's fit and well, he needs to be out playing first-team football.

"Joe Anyon is already available on a free transfer or loan.

"Michael Nelson has also been made available on a free transfer or loan.

"Now Robbie Weir is fit following his injury, he's also available on a free transfer or loan.

"We need to strengthen this team and we will.

"Take care, Martin"
