"One Or Two Things We Are Working On"

5 August 2021

Boss feels that the market will turn back in clubs favour with players going out of contract and not getting wages.

Crewe Alexandra manager David Artell believes the market will turn back in our favour as the summer transfer deadline looms. Contracted players can only move before the end of the month and Artell believes that those without clubs will see them accepting offers soon enough, as to not to go too long without wages.

The Alex boss is still on the look-out for a centre-half and another versatile forward to play across the line. Having already signed five players, the Alex boss says his work is not finished yet and there are ‘one or two irons in the fire’.

The boss told us: “There are still one or two bits brimming, so we’ll see.

“There are still opportunities to do some business. There are three weeks remaining of the window and with that deadline dooming, I am sure there will be a lot of players who will want something sorted.

“For those out of contract, it is sure to be a worrying time. Now that their severance pay has gone through they won’t be paid for this month. They might be able to go without wages for a couple of months but it will soon bite and they will want a club.

The boss added: “I’ve said all along that clubs are cutting their cloth accordingly and there will be a lot of players available and that means the market will come back around. We have to make sure we are in a position to take advantage of that.”
