“He’s at that sort of age, and he’s had a terrific season, so he will obviously have suitors from elsewhere. He now has to weigh up what the best option for him is and I think we can only respect that.

“It’s normal, it’s the way football is. He has a family and a life in front of him that he needs to ensure he has stability about. There are a number of things for him to consider and I respect that fully.

“We, obviously, would love him to stay because he’s been a terrific player for the club. I have a very good relationship with him, but only time will tell now.”
