One of Chesterfield’s former assistant managers has been linked with a move to Fleetwood Town as part of Joey Barton’s staff.
Steve Eyre, who joined and left the Spireites during Gary Caldwell’s reign as manager, has known Barton for 20 years since his days working in Manchester City’s youth set-up.
Barton will take charge of the Codmen at the end of the season when ex Chesterfield manager John Sheridan departs.
Also said to be part of Barton’s backroom team in a report by Sky Sports, is Clint Hill, who trained with Chesterfield but ultimately joined Carlisle United earlier this season.
Fleetwood are yet to confirm the identities of Barton’s staff.
