Dinning first to be told to leave Chester.

Byline: BY NEIL TURNER Daily Post Correspondent

CHESTER CITY midfielder Tony Dinning has been told by manager Mark Wright to find another club.

The controversial 33-year-old Geordie, whose previous clubs include Stockport County and Wigan Athletic, was consistently overlooked by previous City manager Simon Davies amidst reports of a fall-out between the pair.

Now Mark Wright has taken a similar view after working with the player for the past month. Dinning, who made himself unavailable for a match last month after complaining of a blister on his toe, isn't available for the next three matches after being sent off against AFC Bournemouth last weekend.

City owner Stephen Vaughan said last night: "Mark has identified a number of players who don't figure in his plans and Tony Dinning is one of them. The others will be spoken to in the next few days."

Chester are next in action tomorrow when they face Notts County at the Deva Stadium. Midfielders Kevin Ellison and Jay Harris return following suspension, while Damien Mozika is expected to be available.

Stephen Vaughan Jnr has been given the all-clear to resume light training after seeing a consultant. Vaughan has been suffering from an Achilles injury and could be available for selection in the New Year.

Meanwhile millionaire businessman John Batchelor, who had a financial offer for Chester turned down last month, said last night he was still interested in buying the Deva Stadium club and that he would be attending tomorrow's game against County.

"I have been invited to the match by a Chester City supporter and I am looking forward to attending.

"I have had another meeting with Stephen Vaughan, but we haven't reached an agreement about my purchase of the club and unfortunately the meeting ended with a heated exchange."

Another interested party is an American company Worldwide Sports.

However, it is understood that as yet they haven't made a firm offer.
