Steve says with players going out of contract at the end of the month decisions will be made.
Steve Davis believes that things will start to move in the transfer market over the next couple of weeks. The Crewe Alexandra manager has been implementing his strategy in the hope that some ‘exciting players’ will bolster our squad before the season kicks off against neighbours Port Vale on August 8th.
The Alex boss says that with a host of players about to go out of contract at the end of June, the quest to find a club in readiness for the pre-season fixtures will begin in earnest.
Steve and his staff have spoken to a number of potential targets and their representatives, already making their offers to a number of them and now the Alex boss is hopeful our patience and the work behind the scenes will pay off as we head into July.
Steve told crewealex.net: “We have been actively speaking to agents and players and that started before the end of the season. We have got in there early and made our interest known. We have made offers to some and I think it will start over the next fortnight. Players will have to come to some decisions because they are out of contract and will want to get a pre-season under their belts.
“It is always a waiting game at this time of year. Players and their representatives have been away on holiday, but they are coming back into it now. At this stage of the pre-season they weigh up their options because they are still in contract in June. You have to remain patient.
“We have made known our intentions to a few and if we can pull them off then they would be exciting players for the club to bring in. They would be exciting for us as staff to work with and hopefully exciting for the fans. Hopefully all the work we have done over the last few weeks will see one or two come off soon.
Steve added: “I’m sure we will get some decisions made and if we can’t get those number one targets then we have other options there as well. It can be a frustrating time but it is all part of the game of negotiation.”
