Chesterfield are in the hunt to sign Swindon midfield player Alan Navarro.

Sources in Swindon are indicating that Spireites boss Paul Cook is trying to land Navarro on a year-long loan.

Navarro was signed from Brighton at the start of last season but made only 20 appearances for the Robins.

Aged 31, Navarro started his career with his hometown side, Liverpool, but he was unable to break through into the first team.

Spells with Crewe Alexandra and Tranmere Rovers followed before a short spell at Accrington Stanley when both Cook and his assistant Leam Richardson were on the playing staff.

Since then Navarro has also appeared for Macclesfield Town and Milton Keynes Dons.

Defender Richard Cresswell, who has a year left on his deal with Southend United, is another Cook target. Yet another winding-up petition served at Roots Hall could make that transfer easier to secure.

Negotiations with ex- ccrington midfielder Romy Boco are ongoing.

Meanwhile, chief executive Chris Turner reports that the club are very hopeful about their Grassroots Partnership Programme, with the club united in developing young players.
