Rio Ferdinand is to leave Manchester United in the summer after the defender was not offered a new contract.

The 35-year-old's departure will bring to an end a 12-year stay at the club, for whom he has made 454 appearances, scoring eight goals.

'After 12 fantastic years I have decided the time is right for me to move on,' said Ferdinand.

BBC Sport understands he intends to continue playing but his next club is still unknown. BBC
