AFC Wimbledon head coach Mark Robinson has confirmed that Terell Thomas – linked with Championship new boys Hull City – will not be returning to the League One club.
The 25-year-old centre-back is out of contract.
Thomas made just shy of 100 appearances for the Dons during a three-season stay.
“Terell won’t be coming back,” Robinson told AFC Wimbledon’s You Tube channel. “I met Terell about six or seven days ago. We had a long chat and it genuinely a tough decision for him.
“He had made his mind up a long time ago that this was going to be his last season but that changed during the season. I think if he’d played in those last 21 games it possibly might’ve been a different story.
“He just felt he’d had that mind shift that he was going, even thought he could see big changes, he had got his head around the fact he was going to go.
“He had offers. Unfortunately you win some and you don’t. We wanted him to stay, wish him all the best.”
