Former Port Vale midfielder Anthony Grant has been dropped to the youth team for the whole of next season.
The club said the experienced midfielder will not be training with Town’s first team after returning from two weeks out following dental surgery.
Grant did not travel to Portugal on Town’s pre-season training camp and boss Sam Ricketts said the reason for not letting Grant train with the first-team will remain ‘in-house’.
“Anthony needed some dental work and part of that was that he couldn’t do physical activity for two weeks following that operation,” Ricketts told the club’s website.
“That is because raising blood pressure can increase the risk of bleeding.
“That period has come to a close and following that Granty will be training with the youth team.
“He won’t be part of the first-team set-up this season due to reasons which will remain in-house.”
