Turner: "Targets will excite supporters"

Spireites chief executive Chris Turner says that manager Dean Saunders is closing in on some of his transfer targets.

After selling Sam Clucas to Hull City for a club-record fee, Saunders is looking to strengthen his squad. Turner said: "When players leave it gives Dean more ammunition. The players he's looking at will excite supporters, I'm sure.

"Dean is a patient guy who looks for the right players and we're waiting on a few players after putting deals to them. Players who would have been out of our price range will lower their demands significantly when they're without a club. I think something will drop soon.

"I know we've got a good squad as it stands but we want that extra bit of quality to help us compete at the higher end of League One."

Turner confirmed that offers have been rejected from the Championship for members of the Spireites squad, reiterating that players will only be sold if bids are received that cannot be turned down. He said: "We have invested heavily in the playing squad over the last two-and-a-half years and our gates do not sustain the wage bill. We do have to sell, because slowly but surely we need to get the debt down, but we're not in the market just to sell."
