Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray hoping to keep squad intact as transfer deadline looms


Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray is anxiously waiting to see if he can keep his squad together for the rest of the season with the January transfer window looming on Monday night.

He said “We have got a lot of good players and we are always going to have interest in them, so there’s been a few sniffs and a few tentative phone calls. Nothing permanent.

I’d like to keep the group as it in. With 18 games to go, we have enough to progress who we are and what we are at this current time.

“Don’t get me wrong, in the summer for us to move on again to the next level there has to be tweaks, not major like last summer.

“You can never say never. Me and the chairman both want it to stay the same as it is. But with four or five days to go you never know what is round the corner – that’s football for you.

“You can’t really know what’s going to happen in the next hour, let alone the next five days.”
