Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage has announced plans for retirement.

The former Manchester United apprentice has played more than 500 first-team games for Crewe Alexander, Leicester City, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Derby and a loan stint at Brighton and Hove Albion.

"My new deal will take me until I'm nearly 37 and that'll be it," he told BBC Radio Wales.

"I always said I'd like to finish my career at Wrexham but not now, playing on loan at Brighton made me realise the lower you go the harder it is."
