Yeovil Town can confirm the departure of Tom Knowles to League Two side Walsall FC for an undisclosed fee plus future add ons. 

Knowles, who joined the club in November 2020 on a free transfer, played 82 games for the Glovers, netting on 18 occasions. 

The board of directors commented; “We are extremely disappointed to lose Tom’s services. The club did all it could to convince Tom to stay, making him a significantly improved contract offer that would take his existing deal to the end of the 2023-2024 season.

“However, Tom expressed a desire to play at a higher level and consequently rejected the new contract offer. Under these circumstances, the Club has decided it was in the mutual best interests of the Player and Yeovil Town FC to allow Tom to pursue his career in EFL League 2 if acceptable compensation could be negotiated. Agreement on the financial terms of Tom’s transfer has now been reached with Walsall FC and the Club would like to place on record its thanks to Tom for his past contribution to the team and wish him well in the future.”
