MIDFIELDER Matty Dolan will not be offered a new contract by City - but they will be keeping Chris Routis.

Phil Parkinson today confirmed that 22-year-old Dolan has left Valley Parade. He made 29 appearances after joining initially on loan from Middlesbrough in February last year.

Parkinson said: "Matty has been a good member of the squad this year but it's time for him to go and become a regular player elsewhere."

But Frenchman Routis will be back for pre-season after the club took up their option for the second year of his contract.

The former Servette defender, who finished the season in midfield, has played 22 games.

Parkinson added: "Chris has adapted well to English football this year and we look forward to working with him again."
