SCOTT McDonald has left Millwall after reaching an agreement to cancel his contract at The Den by mutual consent.
McDonald was told at the start of the week that he wasn't in Ian Holloway's plans for the second half of the season and talks have been ongoing since to resolve his future.
And it has been decided that, in the interest of both parties, McDonald and the club should go their separate ways.
The news will come as a surprise to Lions fans, who have seen the Australian play more minutes than any other outfield player so far this campaign.
The 31 year-old, signed two summers ago by ex-manager Steve Lomas, scored six goals in 60 Millwall appearances and could now move to a club overseas.
McDonald told the club's official site: "I'd like to thank everyone at Millwall and in particular the fans for all their support.
"I had some memorable moments here, not least scoring the winner at Charlton last season, which was certainly a good feeling.
"I would like to wish the manager and the lads the very best for the rest of the season and I'll certainly be hoping they can move up the table and stay in the Championship."
