Chorlton had led the Grecians' board since December 2009 but was facing a vote of no-confidence from the Supporters' Trust, who own the Sky Bet League Two club.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Mr Chorlton wishes Exeter City AFC well in the future.

"He says the Club has a professional Board of Directors, an outstanding manager, a very talented young team, and a group of hard working staff.

"He thanks them for their support and friendship over the last four and a half years and wishes the club and its dedicated supporters a very successful 2014/15 season."

In May earlier this year, the cash-strapped Exeter decided to take a £100,000 loan from the PFA in order to pay their players after a fall in attendance and ticket sales.

This resulted in the Grecians being put under a transfer embargo until the debt is repaid.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
