John Pemberton believes Chesterfield’s trio of loan players from Notts County will not have their contracts renewed by their parent club.
Goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons, defender Matt Tootle and striker Nathan Tyson are all on loan from the Magpies.
The loan for Fitzsimons finishes at the end of April while Tyson and Tootle will be at the Proact until the end of May.
Pemberton said: “I have spoken to the lads on loan just to tell them the situation that we are in.
“With regards to Tootle, Tyson and Fitzsimons their contracts are up anyway with their club.”
