Former Norwich City midfielder Rossi Jarvis has been released by Luton Town.
The 22-year-old, who moved to Kenilworth Road after he was released by the Canaries in the summer of 2008, made 76 appearances in all competitions for the Hatters, scoring five times.
He was a regular in the team in his first season under former boss Mick Harford, but has been left frustrated on the fringes of the first team this season, since the appointment of Richard Money.
Jarvis said: 'I'm obviously sad to leave but at the same time it didn't come as a surprise at all because, since the manager came in, I didn't feel I was given an opportunity to show what I can do.
'I wasn't in his plans, he wants his own players and that's fair enough. You take it on the chin and move on.
'I'm speaking to a few clubs. I can't say too much at the moment but I'd like to get back into the Football League, but we'll see what comes along.'

The brother of Leyton Orient striker and fellow ex-Canary Ryan Jarvis, Fakenham-born Rossi made 11 senior appearances for Norwich.
Despite his departure from Luton, Jarvis will take some fond memories away with him, most notably being part of the team that started the memorable 3-2 Johnstone's Paint Trophy final win over Scunthorpe at Wembley in 2009.
He said: 'That is something that can never be taken away from us now.
'I really enjoyed a year and a half of my two years at the club and I thank Luton Town and Mick Harford for giving me that chance.'
