Bury fans got the explanation they wanted following the shocking exit of Alex Bruce.

The fans of the club were still trying to wrap their heads around the sudden departure of Adam Thompson, though on a loan deal, when reports surfaced that Bruce was moving out as well.

Bury had explained that the player joined the club on non-contractual terms in their statement. Additionally, Bruce took to Twitter to explain that the media left that part out when reporting the details of his move.

Following his release from Hull City, the defender has been seeking new employers all summer. He claimed he asked to train with the team while searching for a new club, so the deal was non contractual.

“I accepted the kind offer from Lee Clark and Alan Thompson, who I have known for a long time, to train with the first team squad in order to maintain my fitness. At no point did I enter a contract with the club,” Bruce clarified.

He added that he was asked while training to play on non-contract terms as Stephen Dawson was injured in the game against Sunderland. He explained that he needed the match fitness and wanted to oblige them the favour so he accepted.

The manager is set to add reinforcements before the transfer deadline on Thursday. Thompson moved to League One rivals Bradfordon a loan deal but the club got MihaiDobre on loan from Bournemouth. Clark said he would send more players out that those that would join.
