Vanarama National League North club AFC Fylde have confirmed that record signing Dan Bradley has been placed on the transfer list at his own request.
There had been speculation that the former Alfreton Town star had wanted to leave the Coasters and now the club have moved to clarify the situation surrounding his future.
Coasters manager Dave Challinor said ‘This has been a difficult decision for us to make. We have agreed to put Bradders on the transfer list. He asked for a move to a club nearer to his home base in the Midlands due to family circumstances after his wife became unexpectedly pregnant.
“Everyone at the club has and will continue to support Dan and his family in any way we can while he remains contracted to AFC Fylde but we have reluctantly agreed to his request.
“Dan is aware that, as a club, we have invested heavily in him and want him to stay and play a major part in our first season in the National League. As such, if he is to leave, it will be for a fee reflecting our valuation of him.”
Bradley became the Coasters record signing when he joined from Alfreton Town in September 2016.
He helped the club to promotion into the National League last season, scoring eleven goals as they won the National League North.
Now, as the Coasters prepare for their first season in non-league’s top tier, their record signing’s future will lie elsewhere.
