Some of the Halifax squad, as well as their manager, have been attracting speculation over their futures after the club's impressive start to the season, which has placed them among the promotion-contenders in the National League.

Several members of the Town squad are out of contract at the end of the season, but Wild is adamant there will be no departures in January and that every effort is being made to secure his players onto longer contracts.

"We're actively speaking to players, we have been for some time," Wild said.
