CHESTER CITY expect to be active on this loan transfer deadline day, which closes at 5pm this evening.
Striker Marcus Richardson is set to join fellow Coca-Cola League Two club Macclesfield Town, while City manager Mark Wright is hopeful of adding a wing back to his squad.
Wright said last night: "Brian Horton (Macclesfield manager) spoke to me about taking Marcus on loan until the end of the season, and now that Jake Edwards has joined us, it seems the right move for both the player and ourselves."
One clause in the loan contract will be that Richardson won't be allowed to play against Chester when Macclesfield visit the Deva Stadium on Saturday April 1.
Richardson, who joined Chester in the summer from Yeovil Town, scored four goals in his 34 league appearances for City.
Wright is hopeful of signing the Tamworth wing-back Scott Stamps today. The 31-year-old has been training with City for the past week.
Stamps has made nearly 300 Football League appearances in a career which has taken him to Torquay United, Colchester United, and Kidderminster Harriers.
"Scott's looked bright in training, hopefully can add him to our squad." said Wright.
Meanwhile, Chester's reserve side drew 3-3 with Bury in a Pontins League game at Radcliffe Borough's ground yesterday.
City were reduced to 10 men when Sean Hessey was sent off for alleged foul and abusive language, and is likely to rule the defender out of City's next three matches. Chester's goalsscorers were Richardson, Abdou El Kholti, and Stephen Holroyd.
