Following on from the news that six first-team players are set to leave Wycombe Wanderers this summer, three of the current squad have been offered new deals.

Adebayo Akinfenwa, Dominic Gape and Scott Kashket all have deals on the table while an option has been taken to extend the contract of goalkeeper Cameron Yates for a further year.

Chairman Trevor Stroud said: “We are immensely proud of the club’s achievement in reaching and then sustaining its position in League One, and are desperate to continue our upward progress which we hoped would be supported by investment going forward.

“While we remain in talks with a number of interested parties, we have not yet been able to secure the funding that we had hoped and simply cannot gamble the club’s future by maintaining a playing budget that we are unable to afford.

“We are all aware of the pros and cons that come with supporter ownership, and the limitations that it places on us, and I hope that at the same time as celebrating our recent successes, the fans can appreciate the reality of our situation and that we must cut our cloth accordingly.

"There are too many stories across the country where clubs are finding themselves in real trouble due to the financial pressures and it’s imperative that we avoid falling into the same situations."
