Northampton Town's Seth Nana-Twumasi will not be offered a new contract, manager Aidy Boothroyd has confirmed.
The 22-year-old defender has not played for the Cobblers since rupturing his cruciate knee ligament in a match in September 2011.
Boothroyd told BBC Radio Northampton: "I've already spoken to Nana and we'll not be offering him a contract.
"We're a different club now to the one he joined. If we can, we can help him to find himself a club."
Boothroyd added: "He's always got a smile on his face, he works extremely hard but there'll be nothing here for him next year."
"I've thought long and hard about whether I bring David back but I think the best place for him is where he is - playing games in a run-in and then I'll assess that situation at the end of the season," stated the manager.
"Nathan is local, he's very talented, he'll fight for his spot and I genuinely think we've got a very good addition to the squad."
Boothroyd also confirmed that defender Kelvin Langmead's recent knee surgery is set to rule him out until the "back end of April".
