Robbie Threlfall has left City after they agreed to settle his contract.

The former Liverpool left back made 58 appearances after originally signing on loan in February 2010 – Peter Taylor’s first signing.

He scored two long-range goals against Rochdale and Port Vale that season before signing permanently in the summer.

Threlfall, who last played in the FA Cup loss at Watford in January, was one of the group of players whose contracts are up at the end of the season.
