Swansea have confirmed stalwart midfielder Kristian O'Leary has left the club by mutual consent.
The 33-year-old former club captain, who's current deal was due to expire in the summer, spent nearly 15 years with the Welsh outfit - making his debut during the 1995/96 season under then manager Jan Molby.
He went on to play over 300 times for the Swans.
Chairman Huw Jenkins told Swansea's official website: "Kristian is a rare breed in today's game. There aren't many players who serve long enough to get a testimonial these days, let alone give nearly 15 years service as a professional."
He added: "He's always been an honest and hard-working footballer who has been through everything with this club. He has always conducted him as a gentleman and true professional.
"It goes without saying that we thank him for all his efforts and loyalty over the years and wish him well for the future."
