York City Manager Jackie McNamara is looking to trim his squad during the January transfer window, according to York Press.

McNamara inherited a heavily populated playing squad when he was appointed Manager of The Minstermen in November and the club still has a 29 man squad which includes 5 loanees and 2 transfer listed players who are contracted to the club until the summer.

It is understood that City are working close to their maximum playing budget meaning that McNamara must look to reduce the numbers in his squad before making any significant additions.

The club are also restricted to making further loan signings as Football League rules state that a maximum of 5 loan players are permitted to be named in a matchday squad.

Fans favourite Keith Lowe recently left the club by mutual consent to free up a small portion of the playing budget but McNamara is looking to move further players on with the likes of John McCombe, Tom Platt and Marvin McCoy all out of favour at Bootham Crescent.

McNamara has stated that he would like to bring ‘two or three’ new faces to North Yorkshire during the transfer window providing that the City boss can manoeuvre the relevant out of favour players out of the club.
