Former England international Darren Anderton has announced his retirement from the game.

Anderton was capped 30 times for England along with successful stints at Portsmouth, Tottenham, Birmingham and Wolves.

Currently with League Two club Bournemouth, the 36-year old will play his final game on Saturday against Chester in what will be his 569th club appearance.

"It's a tough decision and Saturday will be a sad day," Anderton told the Bournemouth Echo.

"I've been lucky to come to Bournemouth and have really enjoyed it. It's been a great way to finish my career.''
