'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nikki Bull leaves Wycombe Wanderers


Wycombe Wanderers officially confirmed today that goalkeeper Nikki Bull has left the club by mutual consent.

The 31-year-old has played for the club on 114 occasions since signing in the summer of 2010 from Brentford. After an outstanding first season between the sticks, which ended in promotion from League Two, things have seemingly changed for the player, leading to his departure today.

He is ineligible to sign for another club until 1st January 2013.

Nikki Bull himself has released a statement to the local media which reads as follows: 'The past week has been one of the hardest of my career.'

'I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight on unfounded and untruthful comments and rumours circulating about me which have brought my character into question and attacked my integrity.'

'On Monday October 29 I had a meeting with Gareth Ainsworth in which I openly and honestly informed him that I was unhappy due to footballing and personal reasons and that I needed a break.'

'At no point did I refuse to play for Wycombe Wanderers or attend training. During my time at the club I have played many times through injury and illness so to read in newspapers and social media that I had refused to play was extremely upsetting.'

'The fact of the matter is that I was not even considered for selection due to my imminent departure from the football club.'

'Regardless of whether supporters rated me as a player or not I would like to think they all respected the fact that I always gave my all every time I entered the field to represent their club so it has been difficult seeing the fans that I have respected throughout my time at the club turn on me in the way that they have without knowing or waiting for all the information to surface before forming their judgements.'

'My performances in my last few appearances for the club were not up to the standards I expect and demand from myself and it was clear in my mind that all of last seasons defeats and goals conceded had started to take its toll on me and I needed a break.'

'I would lastly like to thank and praise my close friend Gareth Ainsworth on how he has understood and handled my situation and wish him all the best for the future.'
