The future of Michael Nottingham could well be on the radar of manager David Artell at the conclusion of the season.
The on-loan Blackpool has made an impressive start to his Crewe career, remaining unbeaten in the six games he has played thus far and the 30-year-old has formed an outstanding partnership with youngster Luke Offord at the heart of the Alex defence.
Artell says that Nottingham could well be a player we keep an eye on this summer but he stresses that he has his own players’ contracts to resolve first.
The Crewe boss told crewealex.net: “In the long-term Michael would be one we would consider. That is the truth because I’ve always said that we will look for players that improve us and I think he has.
“We have other pressing matters with our players and making the right decisions on them first but when that is done and dusted then we will move on to other things.
He added: “We do not have a list at the moment and the agents will be on their winter break as well, so we can concentrate on the football for now.”
