The club and the Icelandic midfielder, 29, have reached an agreement that sees him leave Turf Moor with immediate effect.

Gudjonsson’s current contract with the Clarets, who he joined in the summer of 2007, was due to expire in the summer.

In his three year spell with the club Joey made a total of 109 appearances, scoring seven goals; his most memorable coming from long range in the Lancashire derby with Preston North End in the promotion winning season.

The midfielder played his part in the Clarets earning promotion to the Barclays Premier League for the first time, but has subsequently only made one league start this season, at Tottenham Hotspur, along with nine substitute appearances.

Joey also made two Carling Cup and two FA Cup appearances in the 2009/10 campaign and his last appearance for the club came in the FA Cup defeat at Reading in January 2010.

Burnley Football Club would thank Joey for his service during a historic time in the club’s history, and wish him every success in his future career.
