AFC Bournemouth midfielder Marc Pugh has rejected a contract extension with the Cherries.
The news is likely to see the end of Marc Pugh's career at Dean Court as AFC Bournemouth are likely to attempt to sell the popular midfielder before his contract expires in 12 months time.
Pugh could potentially walk away from Dean Court on a free transfer this time next year, which is why the Cherries had been so keen to agree a new deal before the start of the new season.
Talks over a new contract have been ongoing since Pugh was offered an improved three and a half year contract at the beginning of December.
Pugh stated from the outset that he was in 'no major rush' to agree a new deal and would discuss it again over the summer.
A number of Championship sides have been linked with Pugh, including Cardiff, Burnley and Derby and Groves has revealed he is willing to entertain realistic offers for him.
Groves told afcb.co.uk...
'I had a long conversation with Marc who was honest and upfront about his decision, He told us he wants to keep his options open at this stage in his career and he is perfectly entitled to do that...
'...We are in a situation now where Marc could leave in a years time for absolutely nothing, so it would make sense for us to listen to offers. That said, any bid would have to be of significant value to the club for us to even entertain the idea of letting him go.
'We haven't received any formal offers yet for Marc but we are sure there are a number of clubs who have him on their radar.'
