The City defender has tweeted his goodbyes this afternoon.

He said:

'Hate goodbyes,I wish the lads all the best.loved my time .Of course u fans who just love CCFC 👍 #pricelessfans#emotional'

Quinn started just four games this season for City, all in the cup. He scored the winning penalty (below) as the Bluebirds beat Leicester in the Carling Cup at CCS.

His only League appearance was off the bench against Southampton.

The next few days should see confirmation of Malkay Mackay's retained list. It would have been expected by now but the events of last week put all normal news on the back burner.

Good luck to Paul Quinn.
