Captain Michael Morrison has left Birmingham City after the expiry of his contract, having failed to agree terms on a new deal.

The 31-year-old had been at St Andrew's on a permanent basis since joining from Charlton Athletic in January 2015 and scored 15 goals in 183 games.

Morrison made 44 appearances last term, scoring a career-best seven goals.

"He has always conducted himself with the utmost professionalism," the club statement read.

"[He] often played through the pain barrier for the good of the team, and to a high, consistent standard throughout."
