Bullard Set for Exit
Thursday, 9th Aug 2012 13:31 by TWTD.co.uk
TWTD understands that Jimmy Bullard will be leaving the Blues before the start of the season. The 33-year-old midfielder has been on the periphery all pre-season and has been left out of the squad for the last two friendlies against West Ham and Colchester, while reports over the weekend indicated that the Blues were looking to offload the one-time England call-up.
Speaking after last night's 2-1 victory at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, manager Paul Jewell said: "At the moment, he's not in the squad, it's as simple as that.
"There are no untoward reasons, I just don't see the point of him sitting on a bench and getting 10-15 minutes."
He added: "Jimmy wants to play football, he works ever so hard in training - at the moment it's just not happening for him."
However, it's our understanding that the midfielder's Town exit is now only a matter of time.
Bullard, understood to be the club's highest earner on wages believed to be more than £15,000-a-week, <a href=http://www.twtd.co.uk/news.php?storyid=19058>rejoined the Blues</a> on a permanent basis just under a year ago having had his Hull City contract terminated.
The one-time Peterborough, Wigan and Fulham man had previously enjoyed a hugely successful loan spell during the second half of the 2010/11 season in which he won the Supporters' Club's Player of the Year award.
