Godswill Ekpolo in action for Town in the Checkatrade Trophy

The 22-year-old Nigerian has joined Spanish third division side Mérida AD for an undisclosed fee.

Right-back Godswill joined Town in November 2016 after leaving Barcelona B but has made just three League One appearances for Uwe Rosler's side.

Since the arrival of Gethin Jones from Everton Godswill has gone further down the pecking order at right-back and has left the club for regular game time.
