Lincoln City boss David Holdsworth unhappy at loan rejections

Holdsworth has made several players available for loan since taking charge

Lincoln City manager David Holdsworth admitted his frustration after two of his players turned down loan moves.

Holdsworth agreed deals with two Blue Square Bet North clubs, who are exempt from the transfer window, only for the unnamed players to reject them.

"It's their prerogative but I find it amazing when a player turns down an opportunity," he told BBC Lincolnshire.

"It's frustrating when you have players who are happier picking up a wage and doing nothing for it."

Holdsworth has made several players available for loan in recent weeks as he seeks to free up funds to bring in new players to his Blue Square Bet Premier side.

Winger Gavin McCallum joined Barnet on loan and centre-half Danny Hone is currently at Barrow, while defender Adam Watts and midfielder Josh O'Keefe remain available.

Holdsworth added: "We're not asking them to leave the club, we're asking them to get match fit.

"If you're going to be in the shop window the only way to do that is by being match fit.

"I can't stand that lazy attitude, that culture of a few players. I'm sure every manager in the land has them, players who think they're better than where they are and I'm not accepting it."
