JASON TALBOT has become the seventh player to leave the Pars this summer.

The 32-year-old has not been offered a new contract by the club following the expiry of his existing deal yesterday.

He joins Dean Shiels, Nicky Clark, Michael Paton, Aaron Splaine, Conner Duthie and Scott Lochhead in moving away from East End Park, with uncertainty hanging over the futures of others.

The former Bolton Wanderers and Port Vale full back was Allan Johnston's first signing for Athletic when he took over as manager in the summer of 2015, and went on to become a reliable performer in defence.

Ex-Livingston man Talbot played 40 times in his debut campaign - which saw Dunfermline win League One - before making 38 appearances the following season.

Despite playing 31 times in the 2017/18 season, Talbot will not be playing his football with the Pars next term.

He leaves having made 109 appearances in all competitions, scoring three times. 

Press Sport understands that there could be further player movement soon.
