Barnet winger Albert Adomah has rejected the club's record contract offer.

The 21-year-old winger is out of contract in the summer and was offered a new three-year-deal last month which would have made him the highest-paid player in the club's history.

A statement issued on behalf of chairman Tony Kleanthous said: "Although Albert has made it clear that he wants to move on, relations between the club and the player remain amicable."

He added: "We respect his decision and reluctantly accept his position.

"There is obviously a lot of interest in him and his stated decision to want to go could lead to a bidding war in January.

"While this may be seen as a blow to our aspirations, we wish to make it clear that manager Ian Hendon will be given money to strengthen the squad if Adomah moves on."
