Chesterfield will speak to Kevin Davies, after the club legend offered his support in the wake of Danny Wilson’s sacking.
Ashley Carson, who is running the club, confirmed: “He has contacted the club and we’ll have some conversations with him.
“He’s highlighted one or two areas he could maybe help with, potential consortiums, he’s got a lot of contacts.
“We will talk to him.
“He’s held in a special place by Chesterfield fans.”
It is not clear if Davies, a UEFA A Licence holder, has put his name in the frame for the managerial vacancy.
Davies is currently 16/1 to get the job with SkyBet.
Chesterfield have begun putting together their shortlist for the job and hope to appoint within a week or so.
