John Sheridan tells wantaway Notts players: 'Just move on'

Joe Jones

John Sheridan has urged any player unhappy at Notts County to "be honest" with him and ask to leave the club.

The Magpies boss admits that he is looking to bring in new blood at Meadow Lane, but insists that he cannot do so unless he moves players on.

"Something is not right and something needs to change," Sheridan, whose side is preparing to face Carlisle United at home on New Year's Eve, told the Nottingham Post.

"We just need a spark. One or two players coming in might be what we need.

"But if people aren't happy then move on. I just want them to be honest with me and I will try to be as helpful as I can and try to move them on.

"Moving players out will help me bring them in."

Notts are still under a transfer embargo enforced by a £350,000 tax debt to HMRC which needs to be cleared in order for Sheridan to make signings.

Sheridan continued: "There are still plenty of games left to play but there's a threat of being in the relegation mix, and a bit of fear we could get caught up in it.

"I'll try to stay positive while I am here and while I am manager, but when you look at the table, it's not good reading.

"I've got to try to freshen things up and I've got to try to get one or two results in from somewhere.

"I am hoping to be active in the window next month but we still have the embargo and I've still got to speak to the new owner (Alan Hardy).

"So I've just got to concentrate on the next game. I am wary that as manager I am not winning games. Seven defeats on the spin is not something I want, the people at the club or the supporters.

"I know it's not good enough. I am not stupid. I need to do a lot better and so do the group."
