Cardiff City cancel Chris Riggott's contract

Cardiff City have confirmed they have terminated injury-hit Chris Riggott's contract by mutual consent.

The former Derby and Middlesbrough centre-back, 30, has left the Bluebirds as a free agent and can now explore the possibility of signing elsewhere.

Riggott had few opportunities since joining from Stoke City in August 2010, making just two Championship starts.

"The club would like to put on record our thanks to the player for his time at Cardiff," a club statement said.

Riggott suffered calf and ankle problems which delayed his debut until the Boxing Day win over Coventry but he limped out of the New Year's Day defeat at Bristol City with a hamstring tear.

The defender joined Cardiff as a free agent last September.
