Jermaine Pennant says that he is looking forward to a "new chapter" in his career after leaving Stoke City.

Jermaine Pennant has stated his eagerness to begin a "new chapter" after leaving Stoke City.

The former Liverpool winger left the Potters after they chose not to renew his contract.

Speaking to The Mirror, Pennant said: "I'm looking forward to the new chapter in my life.

"I met with the manager (Mark Hughes) and he was honest with me which I appreciated, I wasn't playing and at 31 now I need to be playing games.

"I'd like to thank the club for the opportunity of a new challenge and would like to thank everyone at Stoke City and the fans for the fantastic support over the last few years."

Pennant had not started a Premier League game for Hughes's side this season.
