Former Leeds United and Birmingham City winger Jermaine Pennant will continue his search for a new club after being released by Scottish Premiership outfit Hibernian following an unsuccessful trial with the club according to the Daily Record.

The 34-year-old Nottingham born midfielder has been without a club since leaving Bury following a short spell with the Sky Bet League One club during the second half of last season.

Scottish Premiership new boys Hibernian took the player on trial last month and despite Pennant making three pre-season appearances for The Hibees in which he scored in a 4-0 victory at Dunfermline Athletic, the Easter Road based club have opted against offering the veteran wideman a permanent deal.

Pennant will now continue his search for a new employer with the player possibly looking to represent his 15th different club. After starting his career as an apprentice with Notts County, the former England Under-21 international has featured for a whole host of clubs including English Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool and Sky Bet Championship pair Leeds United and Birmingham City.

The winger made 36 appearances for Leeds United and scored two goals for the club during their doomed 2003/2004 top flight campaign. Pennant joined Birmingham City the following season on a loan deal which was later made permanent.

Pennant has recently had spells playing overseas in India and Singapore prior to his spell at Bury. The player could yet return to the English Football League should a club be willing to offer him a chance to impress.
