Bournemouth's Shwan Jalal is leaving the club after six years on the south coast.

The goalkeeper, who made 171 appearances for the Cherries, was part of the squads that won promotion from League One and League Two but will be a free agent from the start of July.

"It's going to take a while to sink in because I have been here for six years," Jalal, whose last appearance for Bournemouth came back in March 2013, told the club's official website.

"To leave such a great club, which will always remain a massive part of my life, is going to be strange.

"But I'm proud and privileged to have played a part in its history and its rise up the leagues.

"When I came here the club was in League Two and had minus 17 points, but look at it now. It's great to have that feeling.

"It's been a hard season because I've been watching a lot from the stands, so I've almost turned into a fan."
