Despite assurances from the administrators regarding wages till the end of the season, there are a number of Gretna players looking to move on sooner rather than later. One whose hand has been forced is captain Chris Innes who has been made redundant. With transfer windows closed, Innes and others who manage to find a new club are faced with a dilemma. They will need to gain permission from FIFA to sign for a club outside the transfer windows. Any club interested in players available from the financially embarrassed club will have to consider if they want to wait while FIFA makes up their mind over the situation. Barnsley are one club interested in Gretna defender Aurelien Collin and a number of SPL clubs are said to be interested in his team-mate Mickael Buscher. The French pair have already approached FIFA for permission to leave Raydale Park and find new clubs.

Simon Stainrod represents both players and has confirmed Barnsley are one of a number of clubs chasing ex-Real Mallorca player Collin. Stainrod said: "
Barnsley have expressed an interest in Aurelien but we are waiting to see what will happen with FIFA They are one of a number of clubs keen on signing Aurelien, with teams from England, France and Germany all keen on him. We are working on trying to get special dispensation from FIFA to allow Aurelien to move to a new club. He just wants to get his future sorted and get back to playing."
