McCarthy pays tribute to midfielder after rejecting new contract
Wolves midfielder David Jones is to leave the Premier League club after turning down the offer of a new contract.
Jones has spent the past three seasons at Molineux and has made over 70 appearances during his time with Mick McCarthy's side.
However, he has not featured since early February and McCarthy has confirmed the former Manchester United youngster has decided to look for another club.
McCarthy told the club's official website
: "He turned his contract down and I have spoken to him and I don't know what he is doing but I have just wished him well and said 'thanks for all you have done'.
"It was really difficult because I couldn't have that conversation before Sunday's game - good, bad or indifferent because it just affects the whole atmosphere. But I have rung him up now.
"He has been fabulous, he has contributed as much as anybody else to the place over the last three seasons.
"We all remember his goal at the start of the season when he flicked it up and volleyed it in - we remember all his good stuff. He has been a pleasure to deal with as well.
"He's been out of the side, but he's trained equally as good every day, in everywhere, always on time, always pleasant, always supportive."
