Rhys Murphy has not yet accepted a contract offer to extend his stay at Yeovil Town.

The Glovers’ top scorer, who has 13 goals for the club this season, is out of contract at the end of the season and therefore free to leave on a free transfer.

Speaking ahead of the match at Altrincham, manager Darren Sarll said: “We have tried to discuss on several occasions with Rhys a new contract and, as of yet, he has not accepted any of those offers. It will be ongoing until he signs for Yeovil or somewhere else. We have taken players from lower leagues and players who were relegated with this club and made them better players, and those players have a right to investigate those offers. It is a job, they still have to pay their mortgage and you have to respect that.”

Murphy has not played since the 3-0 home win over Solihull Moors last month when he came on as an 86th-minute substitute and is not expected to play at the weekend.
