The Chesterfield boss was planning to discuss Jordan Sinnott’s Proact future with him this morning after an on-off summer departure saga.

Sinnott was named on Allen’s 16th May list of players free to leave the club, but appeared to have been given a chance to impress in pre-season.

An exit once again looked likely in recent weeks, before a transfer embargo stopped ins and outs while takeover talks were at a critical stage.

With the takeover ended Sinnott’s future can now be resolved one way or another.

Allen said last night: “I’ll have a chat with him.

“I didn’t think it would be right for him to play (at Matlock).

“There is interest in him.

“I’ve spoken to my boss about the situation, so I’ll have a chat with Jordan.”

Allen paid tribute to the 24-year-old’s work ethic and admits he’s got on well with the former Huddersfield Town man in training.

“He’s had a great attitude in training,” said Allen.

“I’ve enjoyed working with him and I really like him as a person and we’ll see how it pans out after that conversation.”
