COLIN Doyle has confirmed he is leaving Valley Parade.

The Republic of Ireland international played 88 times for City since joining them for £1 from Blackpool in 2016.

He had been offered a new deal at the end of last season but it was believed to be for a lower wage than he had previously been on.

Doyle said on Twitter: "I just wanted to say a big thanks to all the Bradford fans for the fantastic support they have given me over the last two seasons.

"Unfortunately I have just found out from the club that they have decided to go a different route. I loved playing in front of you every week."

Wife Rebecca tweeted: "Gutted for my husband after seven weeks to find out like this, while we were away on holiday."
