The experienced player tweeted: “It is with a heavy heart that I announce my retirement from professional football at the end of the current season.There has been many highs” “2.. and lows during my 17yr career and I would like to thank everybody, especially family, who have been part of the wonderful journey.” @stevenreid12.

Reid has enjoyed a long career starting with Millwall, before moving to Blackburn for a fee of £1.85 million.

From there he enjoyed two loan spells at Queens Park Rangers and West Bromwich Albion before securing a move to the latter in 2010 on a two-year deal.

He remained with West Brom for four years making 82 appearances before he was released at the end of last season.

That was when he signed for newly promoted side Burnley, but he could only manage six appearances as Burnley were relegated from the top-flight back into the Sky Bet Championship.

Although it is unclear of the next steps for Reid, the 34-year-old can look back on what has been a very successful 17 year career.
