Club captain Shane Duff looks set to leave Cheltenham after allowing a deadline on a contract offer to pass.

The 28-year-old defender is the last of the Robins' players offered terms by manager Mark Yates to make his mind up.

Yates told BBC Gloucestershire: "As of Friday 5pm Shane had turned down the offer, we'll still talk to him, but we're looking elsewhere.

"He's got something come up that he likes the sound of potentially - it's not in this country."

Duff has been at Cheltenham since joining the club as a trainee 2000, following in the footsteps of his older brother Michael by establishing himself in the Robins defence.

He won a cap for Northern Ireland under-21s in 2003 and the only other club he has played for was Evesham Town in a brief loan spell during the 2001-02 season.
