Wildig will depart the Shrimps after seven years, having initially joined them on loan from Shrewsbury Town in March 2015 before signing permanently that summer.

The 30-year-old made more than 200 appearances in all competitions for the club across both spells, scoring 25 times.

His best return in terms of goals came in the promotion-winning 2020-21 season, scoring 10 times with the last of those the crucial play-off semi-final strike against Tranmere Rovers.

His career began with Cardiff City, for whom he was an unused substitute in the 2010 Championship play-off final against Blackpool, before heading to Shrewsbury.
