Jermaine Pennant has left Stoke City after the Potters activated a release clause in the former Liverpool player’s contract, The Daily Star is reporting.

The former England U-21 international originally left the club last summer, but incoming manager Mark Hughes offered the 31-year-old a one-year deal to continue his career at the Britannia Stadium.


He has only featured 11 times since then, however, and has confirmed that he is pleased to be moving on to pastures new.


Speaking to the Mirror, Pennant said: “I met with the manager and he was honest with me which I appreciated, I wasn't playing and at 31 now I need to be playing games.


“I'd like to thank the club for the opportunity of a new challenge and would like to thank everyone at Stoke City and the fans for the fantastic support over the last few years.


“I'm looking forward to the new chapter in my life.”


A statement from Stoke themselves reads: “The club opted not to activate a clause to extend his existing contract until the end of the season, thereby leaving the winger free to look for a new club.”
