He has now decided to call time on his career at the age of 36 after failing to find a new club following his release by Leeds United this summer.

“After 18 years living my childhood dream of being a professional footballer the time has come to call it a day and retire.

I have to say a massive thank you to the clubs, staff and fans that I have been lucky enough to play for and in front of. It has been a privilege.

It has been a magical journey so far and as one door closes another opens. Let the new adventures begin!”

– Adam Drury

News of the retirement also sparked a number of comments from former teammates on Twitter.

Northampton Saints star George North says his side won't dwell on last weekend's surprise defeat to Wasps.

The reigning Premiership champions lost for the first time this season at Adams Park, but North is hopeful of putting things right on Sunday at Newcastle Falcons.

"Obviously Gloucester went so well, and when you go down to Wasps, it's a completely different atmosphere and a different game.

But for us, it was a bit of an eye-opener and we'll take that on the chin and work on the next one."

Highly-rated MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli has signed a new and improved contract with the club.

The 18-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest talents in the Football League, and has reportedly attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in the world.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich are thought to be among his admirers, but Alli has committed his immediate future to the Dons.

The youngster's new deal will run until 2017, but manager Karl Robinson admits that it's unlikely Alli will remain at stadium:mk for that long.

"Dele is an exceptionally gifted player and it was only right that we rewarded him for a fantastic 12 months with this new deal.

Dele will continue to be linked with some of the world’s biggest clubs and it’s inevitable that there will be a time when we will have to let him go, whether that be in January, next summer or whenever. "

As people know we've started the season well and the club’s desire to get back into the Premier League is something that is attractive to me."

– Alex Tettey, Norwich City
