Wycombe star Peter Murphy set for surprise exit; plenty of interest

HITC Sport understands play-off finalists Wycombe Wanderers have surprisingly allowed Peter Murphy to leave the club.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that defender Peter Murphy has left play-off finalists Wycombe Wanderers after cancelling his contract by mutual consent.

Murphy was a virtual ever-present for Wycombe this season, making 47 appearances and scoring seven goals as they reached the League Two play-off final.

The 25-year-old scored the first penalty for Wycombe in their penalty shoot-out defeat to Southend at Wembley as they narrowly missed out on promotion to League One.

Murphy joined Wycombe from League Two rivals Accrington Stanley last summer on a two-year deal and he quickly established himself as a key member of Gareth Ainsworth's side.

However, the club have now opted to cancel the utility player's contract early to allow him to leave Adams Park on a free transfer.

The news will come as a surprise to Wycombe fans, who were hoping to see the club's best players remain at Adams Park to mount another bid for promotion next season.

Murphy’s availability on a free transfer has alerted a number of clubs in League One and League Two, with many weighing up moves for the versatile performer.
