Hazell's contract expires

Defender Reuben Hazell's contract has now expired but manager John Sheridan has yet to decide whether to offer the 28 year old another contract. As Hazell has missed the last two weeks through injury, Neal Trotman and Stefan Stam have built up a strong central defensive partnership in his absence. Hazell performed well at Boundary Park and can play at both centre half and right back and he was a free agent when he joined Athletic on his initial one month contract.

Sheridan has now hit the limit of his playing budget and needs to make some decisions, especially with Sean Gregan also due back from injury soon.
