Exeter City midfielder turns down new contract, of a higher value than any previously offered by the club
PLAYERS IN: Meanwhile, Matt Taylor has signed central defender Tom Parkes from Carlisle United.
Parkes joins the Grecians having had two promotions under his belt with Bristol Rovers as well as spells playing for Leyton Orient, Burton Albion and Yeovil Town.
He described himself as an aggressive centre-half who likes to play football and says he can’t wait to get started.
“I am happy to be here,” said the 27-year-old former England under-17 international.
“I got a phone call from my agent saying that Exeter were interested in signing me and I came down last week, had a look at the training facilities, and I was very pleased with everything that was going on down here. I didn’t think there was any problems for me not to sign here.
“It is exciting that you have got a club that is always pushing to try and get promotion. I have had two promotions when I was at Bristol and hopefully I can get another one at this club.”
