Phillips signed a new deal with the south Londoners after netting the match-winning penalty in the Championship play-off final.

But the 40-year-old has only made a handful of substitute appearances this season and will seek regular first-team football elsewhere after holding talks with manager Tony Pulis.

Phillips has hinted he will retire in the summer, but is confident he can still play an important role on the pitch for the next few months.

"I've had a chat with the manager and I will be leaving in January. I've been travelling for nearly two-and-a-half years and I want to find a club nearer home and I want to be playing football for the last three or four months of my career," he said.

"I've had a chat with the manager and he's fine with that. So yes, I'll be moving on. The goal at Wembley was the last one I scored and I want that feeling back. I will leave on great terms and while I'm still here I'll be giving everything if called upon.

"I haven't got another club lined up but I'm hoping I'll get something sorted out pretty quickly."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
