Reds in talks to sign striker Boden from Chesterfield ahead of transfer deadline
ALFRETON Town have confirmed their interest in signing Chesterfield striker Scott Boden.
The 23-year-old has been made available for transfer by the League Two Spireites – and the Reds are keen to secure his services during this month's transfer window.
Boden's current contract with Chesterfield is due to expire at the end of the season.
Alfreton may look to bring him in on loan initially, with a view to a permanent switch in the summer.

"Scott is a player we are interested in," said Reds chairman Wayne Bradley.
"We're happy to be in discussions about his long-term future, as well as short-term.
"There is a three-way conversation going on and there is a possibility."
Boden began his career at Sheffield United and spent a spell on loan with Finnish club IFK Mariehamn before joining Chesterfield in 2008.
He has made more than 100 first-team appearances for the Derbyshire club, scoring 18 goals, but the majority have come as a substitute.
Last season, he played eight games on loan at Macclesfield Town.
This term, he has made 11 appearances for Chesterfield, scoring once – in an FA Cup win against Hartlepool United.
The transfer window closes next Thursday night and Bradley thinks many deals could go down to the wire.
"We've got lots of targets and we're deep into negotiations with players who are available and their respective clubs," he said.
"But I believe there will be more business done on the closing day of the window than in all the others days put together. That is what usually happens."
Alfreton are due to be in Blue Square Bet Premier action tomorrow but their home game against Tamworth looks to be in doubt due to the weather.
"The biggest problem we have is the sheer volume of snow," said Bradley.
"There are six inches on the pitch and it's a case of where do we put it all?
"The forecast is not kind either, with the possibility of more snow on Friday and freezing temperatures.
"So even if we did manage to move all the snow, the game could be postponed due to a frozen pitch.
"We're not optimistic but, at the same time, we're not just sitting doing nothing.
"What we have been doing is making the terracing and stadium entrances as safe as we can by moving some of the snow.
"If we can get the playing surface playable, there's a chance but, as I say, the forecast is not looking good."
