CARDIFF City have released much-travelled striker Jon Parkin.

The 6ft 3ins Barnsley-born player, nicknamed ‘The Beast, made only two appearances for the Bluebirds last season before loan spells with Doncaster Rovers, Huddersfield Town and a successful stint with Scunthorpe United, where he scored six goals in 13 starts.

It is thought Parkin wants to move back to the north for family reasons.
