Dario Gradi has revealed Justin Cochrane wants to leave Crewe Alexandra.Crewe Alexandra boss Dario Gradi has revealed Justin Cochrane wants to leave Gresty Road.
The 23-year-old has slipped down the midfield pecking order this term and has featured just four times for The Alex.
Cochrane is behind three of Gradi's regulars and now the midfielder is seeking pastures new in search of regular football.
"He asked if he could go and I don't think he is going to get into my team," explained Gradi.
"It's difficult to break into that midfield and then we have the likes of Lee Bell, Tony Grant and Michael O'Connor who are all probably ahead of him.
"I think Justin's best game for us was his first game in the friendly against Everton. He hasn't quite managed to reproduce that form since.
"So perhaps it's time for Justin to go and see if he can reproduce that form at another club. He is a super lad, a model professional and a model player."
