Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson spoke to the club’s official website about the departure of the quartet, saying:

“Some of these decisions are footballing decisions and some of them are based on the rules around the Salary Cap. We have managed to bring in the players that we wanted to in the summer and as a result, some players must leave, that is football.

“I am only allowed a certain number of players within the Salary Cap and it is unfortunate that some will have to leave. As a manager you just must be honest with the players, explain the rationale behind the decision and help them as much as you can.

“It is nothing personnel. I am fortunate that I have got the players that I wanted in. I have to balance it off. I felt I needed improvement in certain areas, and I have got players in those areas that I wanted.

“I have spoken to the players that that affects, it is never easy as a manager to have those conversations, but I have to do it. We need to move them on and will look to do so. Ultimately, those players should want to play football as they won’t be involved at all here.”
