Rotherham United, Bradford City, Southend United and Shrewsbury Town are all in the race to sign Chesterfield’s Jon Nolan according to a report from HITC Sport.
The 24-year-old midfielder only moved to Chesterfield during the summer after he had a very successful season with Grimsby Town and helped them to finally get promoted from the Vanarama National after years of being stuck in non-league. And while the Spireites have struggled this season, they are currently 21st in Sky Bet League One, Nolan has been a bright spot in their season with his great performances.
And with Chesterfield struggling and potentially staring relegation right in the face, plenty of teams are now interested in signing Nolan. Most of the teams are Chesterfield’s League One rivals, with Bradford, Southend and Shrewsbury all in the race. However Nolan wouldn’t need to stay in the same league and could once again jump up a division as Rotherham are also considering making a bid for the former Lincoln City midfielder.
Of course with the standard of his performances being very high and Chesterfield being desperate to avoid the drop this season, they will not want to sell one of their star players. However their finances could end up forcing it. They have had investment issues ever since their chairman Dave Allen decided to shockingly resign from his position and that means if a team makes a sizable offer for Nolan, the Derbyshire club could end up being forced to sell him.
Nolan will most likely play for Chesterfield in their game against potential suitors Bradford City today.
