AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini has turned down the offer of a contract extension at the San Siro, according to his lawyer.
The former Arsenal and Marseille player, who is reported to be attracting interest from Inter Milan, Napoli and the Premier League, now looks set to move on this summer.
Milan were prepared to offer the 29-year-old a further two-year deal, but the France international is holding out for a longer contract, Alexandra Missirli confirmed.
Missirli told L'Equipe: "The club did offer us a two-year extension.
"But, considering what he brought to the club, Mathieu wanted a longer deal.
"He is refusing to consider his future at AC Milan."
The 22-year-old's rehabilitation from a hip injury will be helped by the Shrews but he will not play for Graham Turner's men again.
"Unfortunately Jermaine, through his agent, turned down the offer that we had made him," Turner told the club's official website.
"It looks as though he's going to be out for quite some time and we will be responsible for his medical well being, but unfortunately now as far as the relationship between Jermaine and the club, that's gone and Jermaine has departed.
"His contract finished at the end of June and so that's it."
