Northampton Town midfielder Liam Davis is set to leave Sixfields when his contract expires at the end of May.

Boss Gary Johnson had previously said he was undecided on the 24-year-old's future, but he now becomes the 10th player to leave the club this summer.

The former Coventry man has played 91 times since arriving from the Ricoh Arena in 2008, scoring nine goals.

"He has given three years' service to the club and we wish him well for the future," Johnson told the club website.external-link

"But it is another opportunity for us to bring a fresher look to the squad, and it is clear that we do need to bring new players in."

Davis was linked to League One sides Sheffield Wednesday and Colchester earlier this season.

Goalkeeper Chris Dunn and striker Guillem Bauza have still yet to decide on their futures after Dean Beckwith joined the list of Cobblers exits on Wednesday.

"We hope to be able to announce some news on other players early next week," Johnson added.

"I gave Chris Dunn and Guillem Bauza until Friday to let me know their thoughts and plans and to convince me they wanted to be part of our plans for next season.

"That was the deadline I set them to come back to me, but it will be early next week before we can make any public announcement on either of those two.

"We are also talking to other players and again hope to be in a position to make at least one announcement next week.

"We are keen to get things done as quickly as we can, and hopefully by next week we will be in a position to make some announcements."
