Millwall's long-serving centre back Paul Robinson has left the club after 14 years, ahead of a permanent move to Portsmouth.

Robinson has been on loan at Pompey since the start of the season, and has now agreed to mutually terminate his contract with Millwall to make his move permanent.

Debut

The 32-year-old had been on the books at the Den since he made his professional debut in 2001, and had made 362 appearances in 14 years. 

The defender last played for Millwall on the final day of last season, when the Lions beat AFC Bournemouth to secure their Championship status, however, he has not been in contention for Ian Holloway's team this term.

Captain

The fans' favourite, and former captain, is most notable for scoring the winning goal in the 1-0 victor over Swindon Town in the 2010 Coca-Cola League One Playoff Final, the goal that sent Millwall back to the Championship after a four season absence.

Forward Jermaine Easter and midfielder Josh Wright have also had their contracts terminated, and are free to find new clubs, however, the latter has already agreed a deal with League 1 side Leyton Orient and is expected to sign within a few days.

Terminated

Wright, who is the brother of TOWIE and I'm a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here! star Mark, joined from Scunthorpe in November 2011, however, he has been out of the side this year, and was briefly loaned to the O's earlier this season before being recalled.

Easter has also been out of the team recently, and it looks like Holloway is freeing up space in the side in order to bring in some fresh faces to help with yet another struggle for Championship survival.
