Professional athletes are usually under contract so it is very unusual to see them leave midway through their season to participate in a TV show.

Tommy Fury was another athlete to star in Love Island but as a boxer, he didn’t have any contractual obligations to fight.

The Love Island Twitter account revealed the identity of the player on Thursday.

Macclesfield has revealed that they did give ‘Footballer Tom’ permission to get leave for the show.

They released a statement on their official site.

“Tom approached us with the request a number of weeks ago and we were happy to show the same loyalty that he has to us since becoming one of our first-ever signings back in 2021.

“Despite the fact that we are disappointed to lose a player of Tom’s calibre for the foreseeable future, we also recognise the incredible opportunity that this represents for both him and his family on a personal level.

“Tom remains very much part of our plans here at the Stadium and has expressed his unwavering desire to return to the Club after the show.

“We wish Tom every success and look forward to welcoming him back to the Club in due course.”
