Winger Junior Hoilett has announced he has left Cardiff City after five years at the Championship club.

The 30-year-old Canada international confirmed his exit on social media.

He stated it had "been a pleasure to call Cardiff my home for the past five years" as he praised fans and team-mates.

"It saddens me it has to come to an end, but it's nothing but LOVE on this side. Once a Bluebird always a Bluebird," Hoilett wrote.

He joined Cardiff on a free transfer in 2016 after leaving Queens Park Rangers, having previously played in the Premier League for Blackburn Rovers.

Hoilett made 145 appearances for the Bluebirds, scoring 25 goals, and helped them reach the Premier League for 2018-19, staying at Cardiff City Stadium after their relegation at the end of that campaign.
