Brighton & Hove Albion defender Liam Rosenior is leaving the club after his contract comes to an end next month - which will conclude a three-season spell on the south coast.

Rosenior joined the Seagulls in June 2015 on a free transfer following his release from Hull City.

He arrived with a wealth of experience, having spent two seasons in the Premier League with the Tigers, and enjoyed four seasons of top-level football earlier in his career at both Fulham and Reading.

Rosenior went on to make 33 league appearances in his first season at the Amex, as the Albion reached the Championship Play-Offs, but his second campaign was hindered by a long-term ankle injury and he made just 11 appearances in all competitions.

The 33-year-old utility defender has found opportunities hard to come by during the club’s debut Premier League campaign, and he was restricted to just seven appearances in all competitions, but featured as the side picked up its first point of the season in the 0-0 draw at Watford and the memorable first win against West Bromwich Albion at the Amex.

With over 440 career appearances to his name, Liam’s experience has been invaluable in the dressing room throughout his time on the south coast, while away from the pitch he has embraced all aspects of the club – most notably his ambassadorial role with Albion in the Community.

We thank Liam for his contribution in his three seasons with the Albion and wish him all the very best for the future.
