Neal Ardley confessed Wes Thomas’ departure from Notts County was best for all parties as he admitted he did not think the striker would play again for the Magpies this season, Nottinghamshire Live say.
Thomas left the club on Monday after Notts “reluctantly accepted” his request to terminate his contract due to family reasons just several months before his current deal was due to expire.
The forward’s departure came just weeks after Ardley revealed how the former Bournemouth forward had refused to train with the first-team squad due to his concerns over Covid.
That had led Notts to create a bespoke fitness programme for Thomas in a bid to keep him fit in the hope he would return to action when he felt it was safe to do so.
But an agreement was finally reached for the striker to make his exit and Ardley said it was the right move for both the player and the club.
