*BS*ANDY HESSENTHALER has confirmed that David Wilkinson has left the club due to finances.

*BF*The Whites chief said the club could not afford the luxury of carrying three quality goalkeepers on the books.

He said: “We’ve got two contracted keepers in Lee Hook and John Whitehouse and couldn’t really carry David on the books long-term.

“So we’ve made the decision to let David go.

“Lee is now on the transfer list of course – but we do strictly need to shift players out before bringing anyone in.

“We have identified a keeper but we cannot do anything at the moment as the budget is spent. We can’t overspend.”
