AFC Fylde striker Danny Rowe has been transfer-listed at his own request, the club have confirmed.

The 29-year-old has been a sensation since joining the Coasters in 2014, winning the last two National League Player of the Season awards. The club’s all-time top scorer, Rowe has often been linked to moves to clubs in the EFL, and with six months left on his current contract, Fylde say he has now ‘made it clear that whatever happens, he wants to move on in the summer.’

Chairman David Haythornthwaite said in a club statement: “I’m bitterly disappointed Danny wants to move on, as I had hoped he would see out his career with us. However, it looks like that’s not going to happen now, as Danny has had his head turned by his agent and believes he can play at a much higher level.

“We, therefore, reluctantly agreed to honour his request and subject of course to receiving the right offer, will allow him to move. I’m sure many of our fans will be disappointed, as Danny had gained almost legendary status with the club, but this is football and we must move on.”
