Veteran midfielder Lee Bowyer has revealed he will be leaving Birmingham City at the end of the season.
The 34-year-old was part of the Birmingham team that beat Arsenal in the Carling Cup final this past weekend, but he has already been told his two-and-a-half year stay at St Andrew’s will not be extended by Blues this summer.
When asked if he would be offered a new deal, Bowyer said: “I think at the moment the club have said, 'no'. That is not going to happen so I'll be looking elsewhere.
“I wanted to stay anyway, irrespective of what happened at Wembley.
“They might change their mind and keep me on, you never know. But that is up to the club. It is out of my hands. All I can do is try to put on performances.”
He added: “Because of your age, people still question whether you can still get box to box, if you can still do what you used to do.
“But I think I showed against Arsenal that I obviously can.”
