Despite the club`s best efforts and an improved contract offer, Eastleigh have confirmed that defender Jamie Turley has decided not to renew his contract.
And, after receiving offers from the Football League, the central defender has accepted and signed for League Two side Newport County on a two-year deal
The 26-year-old, who made forty-six appearances for the Spitfires, made his desire to play at a higher level apparent.
Albeit extremely disappointing to lose a player of his calibre, Eastleigh understand that at this stage of his career it is an opportunity he cannot let pass.
Turley had spells with Salisbury City and Forest Green Rovers before joining Eastleigh in 2014.
