AFC Bournemouth midfielder Mark Molesley is expected to leave Dean Court for League Two side Exeter City on a free transfer.

The 31 year old is a fan favourite at the Goldsands Stadium, but due to injuries his playing time has been limited in recent seasons.

Molesley joined League Two side Plymouth on a emergency one month loan deal in November and enjoyed his time playing under former Cherries captain Carl Fletcher who was manager at the Pilgrims at the time.

Before his move, Molesley had been struggling with an Achilles’ tendon injury since the start of the season and hadn’t featured for the Cherries at all this season.

It was the latest injury in a long line of injuries for the popular midfielder in recent years.

Between October 2009 and August 2011 Molesley made just two appearances, totalling 16 minutes towards the end of the 2010/11 season.

A persistent foot problem then kept Molesley out for around a year before an ankle injury in March 2011 delayed his return until the tail-end of that season.

At the beginning of last season Molesley was ready to return and featured for the Cherries in ten of the first eleven games of the season before a hamstring injury picked up against Leyton Orient in September sidelined him until November.

Molesley made just four further appearances for the Cherries that season and spent the last month on loan at League Two side Aldershot, where he made eight appearances (two starts) scoring once.

He made six appearances for Plymouth at the end of 2012, but returned following the sacking of Carl Fletcher.
