Exeter City director of football Steve Perryman has no hard feelings over Matthew Gill's decision to sign for Norwich City.

Former Tottenham captain Perryman said: “Matt Gill has been very good for Exeter City and we would like to thank him for his service.

“I think we helped him resurrect his career when he came here because he was a bit low and credit should go to Alex Inglethorpe for bringing him here.

“We've been good for each other. He has helped us to two consecutive promotions and was probably one of the top players in the Conference and then in League Two.

“We are happy for him and would like to thank him for the tremendous contribution he made to the club.”

Perryman said Gill was “one of the best players in the league at Conference level and then League Two level”.

But he added: “His contract has finished and that's the name of the game. He's fully entitled to his move and to go where he wishes and in a way he has returned home.

“In a way it will be strange to see him playing against us next season but that's normal in football.”
