Josh Lillis admits he is sad to be leaving Scunthorpe, but he is keen to find regular first-team football next season.
The highly-rated goalkeeper is leaving Glanford Park after seeing out his contract.
The 24-year-old endured a frustrating season this term with a knee injury sidelining him for three months and resulting in him losing the No.1 spot.
A number of Championship and League One clubs are thought to be weighing up moves with the keeper available on a free transfer and Lillis insists he is ready to kick-start his career with a fresh challenge at a new club.
"I would like to thank Scunthorpe United and the manager and staff for the great 13 years I've had at the club," Lillis told skysports.com. "I've been there since I was 11 and it's been a fantastic club to develop with.
"I am sad to be leaving but regular first-team football is my ambition and is what I need at this stage of my career.
"Last season I went in as No.1 and was unfortunate to sustain a serious injury which kept me out of the team.
"Since returning to full fitness I have given it my all in training and reserve games and I am ready to step back in as a No.1.
"I am excited about the future and taking the next step in my career and helping take a club forward.
"There is so much I want to achieve and I am fully focused on developing as a player and can't wait to get straight back into it."
