Sheridan 'wouldn't stand in the way' of players wanting to leave Chesterfield

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan says he wouldn't stand in the way of any player wanting to leave the Proact Stadium, as long as the terms were right for all parties involved

It follows recent speculation that striker Tom Denton has turned down loan moves to other teams operating in a lower division to the Spireites.

Speaking to Peak FM ahead of Chesterfield's crucial home game to Halifax, the manager said: "I'm not trying to offload anyone but if a club came in for someone, I've got 20-odd players.

"A lot of them aren't playing football and a lot of them won't be on the bench on Saturday. If anyone came in for any of the players and it was right for both parties, I wouldn't stand in anyone's way.

There's a few clubs who have asked about one or two of the players but one or two of the players feel it is better to stay here and not play, which I find a bit odd but that's just life isn't it."

"I've just got to be honest as a manager, I want to be fair with the players and tell them 'work hard while you're here'."

Sheridan also confirmed full-back Bradley Barry and striker Marc-Antoine Fortune have been back in training and are in contention for Saturday's game, but Charlie Carter and Laurence Maguire still need more game time before being back involved in his first-team plans.
