Following reports in the media this morning, City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has confirmed that former England full-back Danny Mills’ future lies elsewhere.
Mills worked hard to return to full fitness towards the end of last season and featured in all but one of the Blues' pre-season fixtures ahead of this campaign.
It was the new City Manager who handed Mills 19 caps during his reign as England head coach and this afternoon he told us of the decision: “It’s never easy.
"I have known Danny Mills a long, long time. He played a whole World Cup for England in Japan and did very well.
"Danny Mills is a super professional football player and is probably one of the fittest we have here. But sometimes maybe it’s time to move on and I’m sorry about that.
"He is a nice man, a good lad to have around and gives everything out there, you always know what you get from Danny and that’s 100%. He doesn’t have any other gear other than 100%."
