Swansea midfielder Matty Collins has left the club by mutual consent.

The former Wales Under-21 international, who had one year left on his current contract, made just six appearances for the Swans in his three-year stay at the club after signing from Fulham in 2007.

Collins stated that it was his decision to bring an end to his stay at the Liberty Stadium as he seeks regular first team football.

He told the club's official website: "It was my decision in the end. I'm 24 and need to play regular football.

"I could have sat in the stands for the rest of the season and played the odd game here and there. But I want to be playing 30 or 40 games a season.

"It's a risk leaving the club without a contract elsewhere, although I have a few things in the pipeline."
