Smurthwaite: AJ agent wanted “six-fold salary increase”

Smurthwaite has confirmed to BBC Radio Stoke that the striker will be leaving the club.

He told the radio station:¬†“I received an email from his agent to say they are rejecting the offer and request that we terminate his contract,” Smurthwaite told BBC Radio Stoke.

“He has done well for us but they wanted his salary to increase six-fold and it’s unfortunate, but we are not in that market.”
