Leeds United have released former Republic of Ireland and Sheffield United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

Kenny joined the Whites from QPR in 2012 and still had one year left on his contract with the Yorkshire club.

However, since he returned from his summer break the shot-stopper was forced to train away from the first team, an indication that he was not in Leeds’ plans for this season.

The 36-year-old has now left the club after Leeds terminated his contract through mutual consent.

He made 81 appearances for the Whites since joining in 2012 and earned seven international caps for the Republic of Ireland.  


Kenny spent eight seasons at Sheffield United and made 297 appearances for the club before moving to QPR in 2010.

He was banned by the FA from all professional football for nine months in 2009 after he failed a drug test for the banned substance ephedrine.
