The Magpies’ manager wanted to add a player on loan to his squad as he looks to continue his sides recent run of form.

But, as was revealed today in
Nottingham’s Evening Post, Dearden was denied after the club revealed that the sufficient funds were not available.

 

Dearden then showed his obvious frustration at the club’s finance problems after refusing to comment when asked about such a refusal. A frustration which seems genuine as he has been denied the chance to add to his squad even after the club received a figure thought to be in the excess of £350,000 from recent cup achievements.

 


The striking of a short-term deal would have cost the Magpies around £2,000 per month. But as we are all aware, money is hard to come by down at the Lane so the concerns of the administrators appear understandable as the Magpie’s hope they can manage to beat the Football League's December 9th deadline.

 


The proposed loan deal was thought to have allowed former-Derby County and Mansfield Town midfielder, Adam Murray, who rejected offers from other clubs – including a ‘higher division’ outfit – to come to Meadow Lane to try and get his career back on track.
