Foxes release Wellens

Richie Wellens has had his contract with Leicester terminated by mutual consent.

Wellens had a year remaining on his deal at the King Power Stadium but last season found himself out of favour and has been told he is not part of manager Nigel Pearson's future plans.

Wellens has been training with former club Oldham this summer to maintain his fitness while he has been heavily linked with a return to another of his old teams, Doncaster.
