The club can confirm that Jake Caprice has joined Burton Albion on a free transfer.
Jake joined the club in the summer of 2020 and ends his Grecians career with 122 appearances and 2 goals.
Both goals in red and white were his first in professional football – one against Carlisle United in League Two, and the other coming last season against Sheffield Wednesday at St James Park.
Caprice was an influential part of the side who gained promotion to League One, providing eight goal assists during the season, on top of the strike against Carlisle. In City’s first third tier campaign in ten years, Jake contributed to a further seven goals.
Gary Caldwell said: “Whilst we are disappointed in the manner in which this transfer has occurred, we will never stand in the way of a player who has expressed their wish to leave the club.
“Jake informed me of his desire to leave in May and I asked him to take time to consider his thoughts over the summer and in the few weeks of return to training, but it was clear that once offered a bigger and better contract elsewhere, Jake’s feelings had not changed.
“We understand and respect his reasons for wanting to move elsewhere and wish him all the very best in his future career.
“The current group and any future signings we bring in must be 100% committed to this special football club.”
