Jones joins Spireites

Chesterfield have handed former Port Vale defender Daniel Jones the chance to resume his footballing career.

Jones was sacked by the Valiants a month ago following a training ground incident which left then-team mate Doug Loft with broken bones in his nose, jaw and cheek.

An internal investigation conducted by Vale led to the left-back having the remaining year of his contract cancelled, thus making him a free agent for any club who wanted to sign him this summer.

Press Association Sport understands a handful of Sky Bet League One clubs were interested in Jones but Chesterfield have won the race for his signature.

The 27-year-old former Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday player, who can also operate on the left side of midfield, has agreed a two-year deal with the League Two champions and his arrival at the Proact Stadium is expected to be confirmed before the weekend.

The Spireites will also confirm the signing of teenage forward Charlie Dawes from Sheffield Wednesday.
