Vincent Kompany is leaving Manchester City after 11 years at the club.
Club captain Kompany, 33, played his final game for the club in Saturday's 6-0 FA Cup final win over Watford.
The Belgian has played 360 games for City since joining from Hamburg in 2008, winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups along the way - including one of each this season.
Manchester City say an announcement on Kompany's future will be made imminently.
Commenting on his decision, Kompany wrote a letter to fans on Facebook, saying: "We've just seen the close of an incredible season. My 11th as a Blue. I cannot believe I'm writing this but ... also my last as a Blue.
