David Artell has confirmed that talks over a new contract for Callum Ainley remain ongoing. The Crewe Alexandra boss is hoping that Ainley will follow his young team-mate, Tom Lowery and commit his future to the club.
Academy graduate, Ainley, has enjoyed his most consistent season in the first-team, scoring three goals from his 34 appearances so far.
Artell said: “I have contacted Callum’s agent and I hope to talk to him and Callum again in due course.
“He is one we are looking at and we want to make sure that he continues developing with us. “
