Chesterfield manager Paul Cook has confirmed that Sam Hird has been taken off the transfer list.

Hird, 26, has been an ever-present so far this season, helping the Spireites top the Sky Bet League Two table.

Cook’s men take on rivals Mansfield Town this Saturday at the Proact Stadium in the first meeting between the two sides in five years.
