Uche Ikpeazu has penned a message to Chairboys fans on his Instagram page after completing a move to Middlesbrough this morning:
I didn’t expect to be saying bye so soon but sometimes in life opportunities come you just can’t turn down.
I just want to say a big thank you to Wycombe Wanderers FC. I appreciate the opportunity you gave me! People say Wycombe is such a unique club and so I wondered what it would be like to play for them.
I now understand why and feel really blessed and privileged to have been a part of such a special club.
I also want to thank all the staff and everyone connected to the club, especially The Gaffer, Gareth Ainsworth, who has played an integral part in my development on and off the field! The amount of faith he has shown in me, bringing me to the Championship and having the belief in me throughout is something I’ll never forget.
Last but not least, I would like to thank my team mates who have played a key role in my progress both as a footballer and person in such a short space of time. I’m grateful for every single one of you and you are genuinely the best group of people I have shared a dressing room with.
I wish the club the very best for the future and I will be watching and praying they get back to where they belong! You’ve gained a fan in me. Thank you, UI.
