ADDICKS defender Ben Purrington will leave the club once his contract expires at the end of this month.

The 25-year-old will become a free agent at the end of his contract and will be on the lookout for a new club.

It has been reported by the South London Press that the club will not be offering Purrington a new deal.

Initially joining the club on loan from Rotherham United in 2019, Purrington would go on to become cult hero at the club after he scored an important equaliser in the League One play-off final win over Sunderland.

The defender has played 115 times for the Addicks, scoring nine goals in the process.

Last season Purrington made 27 appearances for the club with his last outing in the club's colours coming against Rotherham in April.
