Crusaders have placed defender Stephen McBride on the transfer list at the player’s request.
Crues boss Stephen Baxter admitted the club had “reluctantly” made the 29-year-old available to other clubs.
McBride – who has six months remaining on his contract – has been left frustrated by a lack of regular first-team football this season.
“We have reluctantly agreed to place Stephen on the transfer list, but we certainly don’t want him to leave,” Baxter said.
“I can understand his frustration at not playing as much as he would like, but he is a very experienced and important member of this squad.
“He is anxious to be playing football and I can appreciate that, but we do not want him to leave.
“So it is with great reluctance that we have placed Stephen on the transfer list.”
