BILLY Knott has confirmed he is leaving Bradford City.

Phil Parkinson has not publicly released details of the club’s retained list so far.

But the midfielder, one of the players out of contract, this morning posted a farewell message to supporters.

Knott said: “I would like to thank everyone at Bradford City. I enjoyed most of my time there, the fans were brilliant with me from day one and I can’t thank you enough.

“I want to thank the staff and the players. I have met some really good people.

“Good luck for the future and trust me I don’t mind being remembered for THAT goal against Leeds.”

Knott made 79 appearances for the Bantams and scored eight times – most memorably with a crashing half-volley from the edge of the box in the Capital One Cup win over Leeds in August 2014.

But he struggled to have the same impact in a difficult second season and was pushed out the picture by the arrival of Josh Cullen from West Ham.

Knott did return to the side over the Easter weekend and helped City to back-to-back wins – in what proved to be his last starts for the club.
