"There are loads of people I’d like to thank for the five years I spent in South Wales. I loved my time at the club and will have many fond memories. Playing in the Premier League was a dream for me and the journey to get there was incredible and one I will never forget. The final game of the season vs. Reading will remain one of my favourite memories in football.

"Thank you to the manager, the owner and the board for giving me the opportunity to play for you, and the brilliant players and staff that helped me along the way. I have made some great friends and will be sorry to say goodbye.

"Finally, to the fans... you have been incredible to me over the last five years, and know that I will never forget you."
