Local press reports have tipped midfield player Anthony Barry to be the first to leave the Deva Stadium when the January Transfer window opens in a matter of hours. 

Reports suggest Barry may well have played his last game for the troubled Deva Stadium club, with at least two clubs preparing to offer the former Everton trainee a contract.

Barry, along with a number of other Chester first team squad players, have been watched regularly over the past months as the Football Conference basement clubs financial woes gathered momentum. A number of the senior players are still awaiting their November salaries, and the December wages become due next week.

It is understood that ambitious Fleetwood Town are preparing to offer Barry terms, whilst Wrexham are also known to be keen to add the midfielder to their payroll.

Barry suffered an unfortunate training ground hamstring injury last Wednesday which will keep him out of action until next week, and with the transfer window opening on Friday it is expected he will move on.

Barry is in his second full season with City, after joining from Yeovil Town in June 2008. The player started his career as a junior with Everton, before enjoying spells with Coventry City and Accrington Stanley, he joined Yeovil in January 2006.

Other City players who have been watched by other clubs recently and could well be on the move in the transfer window are central defender Shaun Kelly, former Wales youth international midfield player James Owen, and ex Everton striker Nick Chadwick. Any outgoings will reduce Chester’s playing strength to farcical levels, which will make the hardworking City boss Jim Harvey’s job even more difficult.
