Simon Lappin has left Norwich City by mutual consent after both parties reached the decision to help the player seek regular first team football elsewhere.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton told the club’s official website: “In my time at the football club, Simon’s application and attitude has been excellent, and I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”

The midfielder became one of the longest-serving members of the squad upon Adam Drury’s exit, having signed almost six years ago on January 31, 2007.

The 29-year-old scored four goals in 126 appearances for Norwich City and played a key role in promotions from League One and the Championship.
