MIDFIELDER Amine Linganzi has confirmed he will not be staying with Swindon Town for their 2018-19 League Two campaign.

In a message via social media this morning, the 28-year-old Congolese player revealed he was leaving the Energy Check County Ground, citing family reasons for the decision.

Linganzi was one of six players to be offered new terms by Town boss Phil Brown following the conclusion of the 2017-18 campaign

Veteran Matt Taylor has agreed a new one-year player-coach deal to remain at the club, but defender Matt Preston chose to join former Town boss David Flitcroft at Mansfield Town.

Goalkeeper Stuart Moore and defenders Ryan McGivern and Joe Romanski are the others to have been made offers.

Linganzi made 25 appearances for Town last season, although his campaign was also afflicted by injury.

He was among the first to be signed by Flitcroft last summer and scored his first goal for Swindon during their 3–1 away victory against Mansfield in October, one of two goals he netted during the campaign.

Capped four times by Congo, the player offered his thanks to Town in a post via Twitter this morning.

It read: ''Many thanks to the club who gave me my chance to wear this beautiful red and white shirt.

''It was an honor for me. After many discussion(s) with the club I've decided to leave (family reason). Thanks you for your amazing support.''
