Alex Mendy is able to make his Chesterfield debut in Saturday’s crunch clash with Leyton Orient at the b2net Stadium after belatedly receiving international clearance for his move to England.

‘It has been a very frustrating time for both the club and the player as according to the rules this should have been sorted out within seven days,’ said boss John Sheridan.

‘The good news is it is now been finalised so Alex is at last able to be in my plans.’

Reported target Jonathan Forte was on target for Southampton in the League Cup on Tuesday night but, despite national newspaper reports to the contrary, had not moved to Chesterfield as at 6pm on deadline day.
