Northampton Town manager Dean Austin has wished departing defender Brendan Moloney well after it was confirmed Moloney will be leaving the club at the expiry of his contract at the end of the month.
"I went to see Brendan and we had a good chat," said the Cobblers boss.
"Brendan explained to me he had been made a very good offer by another club and so we shook hands and agreed to part on very good terms. He has enjoyed his time here and has done very well for this club over the last three and a half years and he will always be welcome back here.
"We wish Brendan every success with wherever his career takes him next, he is a credit to himself and his family and he will always be a friend of the club."
Meanwhile, the Cobblers boss has also stated his policy on commenting on transfer speculation, with recent social media comments linking the club to a number of potential targets.
"I won't speak about players who are under contract to other clubs," he said.
"I would hate it if another club spoke about any of our players and so I certainly won't be doing it myself. I have the highest respect for all other clubs and their players and we won't be commenting to confirm or deny any speculation that comes up either now or in the future.
"We will go about our business, speculation will come and go, some of it may be true and some of it may be wide of the mark, but we won't get drawn in to confirming or denying speculation. What we will say is that when any announcements are ready to be made, our supporters will be the first to know."
