Norwich have announced that midfielder Simon Lappin has left Carrow Road by mutual consent. The 29-year-old has struggled to break into the Canaries first team since their elevation to the Premier League in 2011.

Norwich boss Chris Hughton told the club's website: "In my time at the football club, Simon's application and attitude has been excellent, and I would like to wish him all the very best for the future."

Lappin arrived at Carrow Road in 2007 from St Mirren and went on to make 126 appearances for the Canaries.
