Turner: "We are not looking to sell"

Spireites chief executive Chris Turner insists that manager Dean Saunders is under no pressure to sell any of his players.

Turner has spoken out following speculation linking several players with moves away from the Proact Stadium. He said: "Dean has been very impressed with the squad he has inherited from Paul Cook. He wants to keep the squad together and make it even stronger. Dean has assessed the squad in pre-season and he will identify areas he feels need to be strengthened.

"We are not looking to sell any of our players, as illustrated by the fact that we have turned down offers for three players over the summer. If we were actively looking to sell players, we would have accepted the bids we have received. We would only sell a player if we received an offer which was impossible to refuse."

Turner believes that interest in Chesterfield's players is a measure of how the club has progressed in recent years. "It is flattering that there is interest in our players from clubs in higher divisions and that is largely down to good recruitment," he said. "We want players who have the ambition to play at a higher level and hopefully they will be able to achieve their goal with Chesterfield."
