Gary McSheffrey: Excited by Chesterfield move

The 31-year-old had been training with the club following his departure from Sky Bet League One side Coventry.

If McSheffrey's short-term spell is a success the Spireites could extend his contract until the end of the season.

McSheffrey told the club's official website: "I could have just seen out my contract at Coventry and picked up my wages every month but the manager here has given me the opportunity to play football. I plan on taking the opportunity with both hands.

"The squad is very impressive and there's a good feeling about the place. The manager has a philosophy of total soccer and the lads play some good football. It's a club that's only going one way.

"It's good for both parties because it gives me an opportunity to start playing again and the club can take a good look at me over the next few months. There's a strong possibility that it could be turned into a permanent arrangement."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
