Otis Khan just does not make enough impact on games at League 2 level. He can often completely disappear in games. He is a very expensive luxury player that we do not need and who has not justified his transfer fee and presumably big salary. I would not want to rely on him when the going gets tough. I can understand GC's decision.

Otis Khan has not been able to gain a regular starting place under three different managers. It tells you a lot. There are much more effective "playmakers" (or wide midfield/forward players) out there. It's up to GC to find one. Otis Khan has had his chance and come up well short of what is going to be required.

I wonder why this activity has happened so late? Has GC been waiting for the green light on other players?

Trust the manager.He is with the players all week and he is paid to sort the wheat from the chaff.Khan is a decent player but didn't do it for 90 minutes.The team next season will be unrecognisable.

That depends on what league we will be in.

I was a big Khan fan, rate him highly.

Makes you wonder if it’s an attitude problem as none of our last few managers have fancied him?

Khan, like others, has flattered to deceive. To use a popular analogy on here, ‘one swallow does not make a summer’. He has good games, changed games and been a delight to watch but not consistently. Dave took a punt on him and he started last season very brightly but faded, this season he has been more miss than hit. Despite, by GC’s admission that the squad is unfit, doing extra training of his own he did not spark. I wish the lad well in his endeavours it’s just that he has a good eighteen months to prove himself up to our expectations (last season and this) and has fallen away.

Enjoy it in Wales, Otis, just don’t let it be the graveyard of yet another possibly talented footballer. Also, by using public transport will you get from Mansfield in time to start on Saturday?

Whilst I agree he's not live up to his potential, he still has the best assists per minute ratio than any of our squad with three assists or more. Only James Clarke has a better ratio overall.

Otis Khan came on as a 65th minute sub for Newport in their 1-0 home defeat by Cambridge United.

What did he ever do? I wouldn’t miss him at all. Good for the first game then missing on the pitch and on in training too.
