City have stripped Zesh Rehman of the club captaincy and put him on the transfer list.

The shock news was announced this morning in a statement which read: "This decision has been taken due to a club disciplinary matter."

It is understood that City were angry about comments made by the defender during a radio interview earlier this week.

Rehman will be available to leave on a free transfer when the window reopens next month. Midfielder Lee Bullock has been appointed the new club captain.
