Norwich City manager Chris Hughton told the club’s official website: “In my time at the football club, Simon’s application and attitude has been excellent, and I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”

The midfielder became one of the longest-serving members of the squad upon Adam Drury’s exit, having signed almost six years ago on January 31, 2007.

The 29-year-old scored four goals in 126 appearances for Norwich City and played a key role in promotions from League One and the Championship.

  • Last Motherwell player to score a winning goal against Celtic, when he was on loan from you guys… would happily have him back at Fir Park if we had any money. Which we don't.

  • To the KOS a true professional and great servant to the club and totally agree with the various comments before wishing you all the best. If some of the present players who are playing had the passion and the commitment you have we would have better results. Voicing Pa Snipps I wish you luck if you take the road to Cardiff or any other road but not the A140 south unless you are heading for the A12. OTBC.

  • An enigma to me, The King of Spain. Never played badly, but treated as a scapegoat by the bitter & twisted Ruder. Terrific attitude and a better player than credited for - nothing flashy about him; maybe he was too self-effacing? Without wishing to be a "whinger", maybe a moderate fee was in order. We don`t want other clubs rumbling that Norwich might be a soft touch..... I hope he joins Malky @ Cardiff and gets a good run in the Prem next season. Something that was denied to the admirable Mr. Mackay. Perfect fit. Good luck, Lapps.

  • No budgie it is not you who are losing the plot. It is this management team who are as incompetent at selling players as buying them. Good luck King of Spain. I hope your new club treats you better than Norwich.

  • The comments here should be used as a reference for potential employers. Lapps is a true professional, and a very good player. He deserves to find a new club soon. I wish him all the very best for the future.

  • Sad day for this family. My youngest daughter (age 5)first football match at friendly at Hull this pre season and Lapps gives her a NCFC Premier League ball. Sad to see him go. Best of luck to him and he's family.

  • couldn't agree more with all the comments. Great pro. best of luck. My abiding memory of the league 1 title winning season was Lappin smashing an inflatable beach ball in to the net after the last game of the season against carlisle and celebrating wildly in front of the fans.SUPERB

  • One of the more reliable players on our books, undervalued, and underplayed, and he could cross the ball from the left wing too. Good Luck for the future. Join Malkie by all means but don't go down the A140.

  • My idea of a true Canary Legend. He didn't score his way to 3rd place in the Prem like Sutton, Score the winner against Bayern like Goss or have the length of service that Gunn had, but after the way that Glenn Roeder treated him he forced his way back into the side and did his talking on the pitch. I wish more players - especially fringe players - signed to PL clubs were more like him. Hopefully he'll go to Cardiff and get the chance to play top-flight football again next season.

  • Top pro, who has never let the club down. Treated very badly by Roeder. Well done to the club for letting him go on a 'free' so that he can deservedly get a good contract elsewhere. Will be a real asset for a Championship or SPL club.

  • Good luck King of Spain, all the best. And we'll done to the club by rewarding great service with a release despite the petty whingers wanting to ask for 6 figures. Mind you, if the club asked for 6 figures they'd whinge that he wasn't given a free!

  • I must be loosing the plot . Surely Lapps was worth something to a championship club, a small fee of say £200000 or so . Someone is going to get one hell of a bargain. Good luck Lapps - model pro
