Michael Branch and defender Graham Allen could be set to leave Chester.
Chester City chairman Stephen Vaughan has revealed that striker Michael Branch and defender Graham Allen could be set for moves away from the Saunders Honda Stadium.
Both players are out of manager Mark Wright's plans and Vaughan has confirmed interest in their services from other clubs.
Branch (pictured) is being targeted by Rochdale, while Altrincham are keen on Allen, and Vaughan would be willing to let the players move on loan.
With the pair not in Wright's thinking, Vaughan is hoping that their departures would allow the Blues boss to strengthen in other areas of his squad.
"With the Rochdale inquiry for Michael and the possibility of Graham moving to Altrincham we have to subsidies both loan deals if they go through, but it would make room in our budget to bring players in," Vaughan told the club's official website.
"Neither of the players figure in Mark Wright's futures plans, so if the deals can be agreed then it would be beneficial to all sides."
