Administrator Bob Young has played down delays to players signing new contracts and says he doesn’t see it as a “major stumbling block.”
Young told BBC Radio Stoke that the new contracts offered to the players would take them to the end of the season.
Young commented: “I can’t offer two year contracts to anyone, but I have given a commitment to Micky and the players that we are willing to enter into contracts until the end of the season.
“I have signed those contracts and they are just there waiting for the players to sign. Some players have already signed those contracts and others are just consulting with the PFA to check out if it is the best thing to do.
“But I don’t see it being a major stumbling block and I expect the contracts to be signed in time to play the first league match.”
