Kristian O'Leary parts company with Swansea

Kris O'Leary
Kris O'Leary has played more than 300 games for home-town club Swansea

Swansea stalwart Kristian O'Leary has left the club by mutual consent after nearly 15 years with the senior side.

The Port Talbot man, 33, has made over 300 appearances for Swansea since his debut under Jan Molby in 1995.

Former captain O'Leary, who plays midfield or defence, had a contract until the end of the season, but he has been released to pursue other options.

"Kristian is a rare breed in today's game," Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's website.

"He's always been an honest and hard-working footballer who has been through everything with this club.

"It goes without saying that we thank him for all his efforts and loyalty over the years and wish him and his family well for the future."
