John Talks Transfer Targets

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Fri 30 Jun 2017

With several signings already preparing for life at Macclesfield Town, boss John Askey has discussed the remaining elements of the squad he needs before the season begins.

Askey was clear to highlight the importance of quality over quantity as he continues the recruitment process.

He said: “We are quite a bit of a way off yet to getting a squad that we want to get together, it’s obviously a little bit frustrating. I think we’ve got eight players signed at the moment but what I’m not prepared to do is sign people who are signing because we can afford them at this point signing people who are not good enough for this league just because they’re on low wages.”

"I don’t think it’s fair on myself to be expected to do that so until we are in a position where we can sign the players that we want then I won’t be signing people.”

The gaffer then went into further details of the positions we are looking to fill in the coming weeks.

He said: “Ideally we need another goalkeeper another centre half, a centre half come right back as left back we are more than adequately covered for. Plus two or three midfield players and then probably three or four forwards.”
