Boss says he doesn't expect midfielder to change his mind over new deal
David Artell has admitted that it looks highly unlikely that Ryan Wintle will remain with the club beyond his current deal.
The Alex boss has revealed that the midfielder has not made encouraging signals to sign a new deal with the club, despite having being offered new terms a long time ago.
Artell has explained that he has had Championship managers and Director of Football’s asking about the former Alsager Town midfielder.
Artell told the club’s official website: “I think the door shut firmly on Ryan a while ago if I am honest and that is not me throwing my toys out of the pram or anything like that.
“He was offered a new contract a long time ago and he hasn’t signed it. I don’t think he will change his mind now and I’ve taken phone calls from Championship managers and Director of Football’s about him, so I would imagine that has progressed somewhere else.”
