Adebayo Akinfenwa is leaving Gillingham after turning down a new contract.

The big striker, who scored 10 goals this season, was offered the new deal last week but will now move on as a free agent.

Boss Peter Taylor told the club's official website: "Sadly we have been unable to agree terms on a new deal and so Bayo will be leaving the club.

"I have the utmost respect for Bayo; he has been a superb ambassador for Gillingham and scored some very important goals for us last season.

"He has been a model professional, a great character to have around the place and I have very much enjoyed working with him."
