Former Coventry City striker Marlon King has left Championship side Birmingham City after his contract was cancelled by ‘mutual consent.’
At the end of last season, The Blues informed King he was free to leave the club due to financial difficulties involving owner Carson Yeung and the need to meet the new Financial Fair Play regulations, and now a package has been agreed.
King had one year remaining on his three-year deal at St. Andrews however both parties have now agreed to cancel the contract.
King signed for Birmingham after a year with Coventry City, and in controversial circumstances.
Coventry had publicly announced that the striker had verbally agreed a new two-year contract with the club, only to see him sign for Birmingham on a three-year deal just days later.
King, netted 13 goals in 29 appearances for Coventry City in his one season at The Ricoh Arena.
