Mark Davies has thanked Bolton Wanderers supporters and staff after it was announced last week that he would be leaving the club at the end of his current contract.
The long-serving midfielder joined the Whites from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2009 and went on to make over 200 appearances during his time at Macron Stadium.
He is currently sidelined after suffering a cruciate ligament injury back in August, but will continue to receive treatment on the injury that curtailed his 2016/17 campaign.
Bolton's vice-captain during the 2015/16 season, the 29-year-old shared his pride at representing the Trotters when thanking fans for the support given to him since he first made the move to BL6.
"I would just like to thank the Bolton Wanderers fans for the last eight-and-a-half years," Davies told The Bolton News
. "Since the day I arrived it was made to feel like my second home by all the fans and staff I have been involved with.
"I would also like to thank everyone also because I know I have had a couple of major injuries and it would have been easy for people not to be patient, as the club and the fans have been with me.
"The past couple of years have not gone the way we would have liked but I’m glad that while it hasn’t been a good year on a personal level, it is nice to see the club is heading back in the right direction towards the Premier League.
"I wish everyone all the best for the future. It has been an honour to have stayed at a club like Bolton for as long as I did."
