Danny Murphy has announced his retirement from football.
The 36-year old midfielder has been without a club since leaving Blackburn Rovers at the end of last season and has decided to hang up his boots after a 20-year career.
"There have been some press reports about whether I'm still playing or available but I decided a little while ago I would retire, I just didn't make it official," Murphy told talkSPORT.
"So now I'm officially retiring because I'm sick of having conversations about it and almost stringing people along. I decided three or four weeks ago I was done.
"This is me, 20 years, I'm done.
"I've had a wonderful career and can look back on it with fondness."
