FORMER Bolton Wanderers and Wrexham midfield player Scott Green is the latest player to be linked with Nationwide Conference champions Chester City.
The 34-year-old has been with Telford United this season, but the Shropshire club's parlous financial state means they are desperately trying to off-load their expensive full-time squad.
Green was an apprentice with Derby County before making over 400 appearances for Bolton, where he won a first division championship medal. He then had spells with Wigan Athletic and Wrexham.
City boss Mark Wright has already captured Morecambe midfield player Stewart Drummond, and the transfer of the Scarborough winger Keith Gilroy is expected to be completed next week.
"We are looking at a number of players, who we consider will strengthen our squad," said Wright.
A crowd of 1,658 turned up at the Deva Stadium yesterday for the Wayne Brown Testimonial match, arranged to benefit City's long-serving goalkeeper. A team of past Chester favourites played the present City side.
There's football at the Deva Stadium this evening when Chester's reserve side play their final home match of the season. Burscough are the visitors in a Lancashire League fixture, 7.30 pm kick-off.
Meanwhile, Chester's central defender Carl Ruffer is expected to complete his move to Morecambe this week. The ex-Runcorn player made over 100 first team appearances but spent the last month on loan at Droylsden.
Former Chester City wing back Michael Rose, a member of Conference runners-up Hereford United's team, has signed for third division Yeovil Town.
