Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle has confirmed winger Gary Roberts has turned down a two-year contract extension with the club.

He also revealed that because of the looming League One salary cap, set for 2012-13, a clause in the deal offered to the 27-year-old would decrease his salary if the Terriers' fail to win promotion this season.

"Gary was offered a deal which would have taken him through to 2014 but he has rejected that," Hoyle told the Daily Examiner.

"He is quite within his rights to do so, of course, and he is quite within his rights to play the final year of his contract and leave on a Bosman (for free).

"That's the reality of football at the moment and with salary capping coming in, it means that should we not win promotion this season his salary would go down.

"In football generally this sort of thing will have to happen, and there will be a huge influx of players on the market and looking for clubs at the end of the forthcoming season because of the general economic situation and the salary cap."
