Aaron McLean has left Bradford City by mutual consent, reports the Telegraph & Argus.
The former Peterborough United and Hull City striker was understood to be the highest earner at Valley Parade, and now the player and club have come to an mutual agreement with a year still to run on the deal.
McLean joined the Bantams in January 2014 for an undisclosed fee from Hull and scored seven goals in 27 appearances. But he spent most of last season on loan at former club Peterborough, initially as a player but then as part of the coaching staff when Dave Robertson was put in charge following the exit of Darren Ferguson.
The 32-year-old is a popular figure at London Road and could be on his way back in a similar role as Robertson has now been given the job full-team at the League One outfit.
Joint-chairman Julian Rhodes had mentioned of putting an extra fitness programme in place through the close season to get the striker in shape for another chance at City, but it appears Phil Parkinson had hinted that McLean wasn’t part of his plans.
