CHESTER CITY are poised to bring in one player to bolster their squad prior to Thursday's transfer deadline, while one or possibly two of the existing squad could be leaving the Deva Stadium.
Midfield player Tom Curle, who is out of contract at the end of the season, will leave the club today, with a final payment in lieu of the remainder of his contract, while another of the transfer listed play-ers could also be moving on.
"I am not prepared to discuss the matter in public, but there was an incident that happened on Saturday that we have taken a dim view of," said City chairman, Stephen Vaughan.
Vaughan continued: "Tom Curle will be leaving the club with a final payment, and it could be that there will be another departure in the next day or so."
Curle's first team appearances were restricted to just two substitute outings during his spell at the Deva Stadium. He also appeared in an LDV Vans Trophy match at Cambridge United.
"We are trying to make space in our squad by releasing or paying up the contracts of certain players, but it is an extremely difficult exercise at this time of the season," said Vaughan.
City are hopeful of completing the loan signing of the Exeter City striker Jake Edwards prior to Thursday's loan signing deadline. "Jake has bags of experience, and will fit in well to our squad," said City manager Mark Wright last night.
Meanwhile, midfield player Tom Curtis has had stitches applied to a nasty foot injury he sustained in Saturday's match against Cheltenham Town. However, it is hoped he will be available for next Sunday's trip to Wrexham.
