Chesterfield are reportedly one of the clubs hoping to sign Aaron Ramsdale on loan from Premier League AFC Bournemouth for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old is yet to play for the Cherries first team since joining from Sheffield United in an £800,000 deal a year ago.

Town’s fellow League Two side Stevenage were also said to be keen on the young stopper.

Ramsdale’s professional appearances have been limited to a pair of FA Cup games for the Blades.

He was part of the England squad who won the European Under-19 Championship last summer.

His arrival would likely mean the departure of emergency loan signing Jake Eastwood.

Chesterfield are hoping to welcome a number of new faces in time for Saturday’s trip to Accrington Stanley.
