David Unsworth has turned down the offer of a player/coaching role at Turf Moor and will now leave the club to seek a playing role elsewhere.
The 34-year-old defender made 31 appearances for the Clarets last season following his arrival on a free transfer from Wigan Athletic.
Unsworth's one-year deal expired this summer but Owen Coyle was willing to offer a dual player and coaching role.
The former Everton and England defender has however expressed a desire to extend his playing career and therefore will become a free agent from July 1.
It is probably no surprise to Clarets fans that Unsworth eventually turned us down after taking many weeks to come to a decision, probably exploring other options.
Clarets gaffer Owen Coyle said:
'David still wanted to play at the highest level possible and I fully understand that.
'However, we cannot guarantee him a first team place at Burnley and we made that clear.
'There was an offer on the table that would have meant David taking a significant hit financially, but equally would have given him the opportunity to move into coaching
'However, after having a chat we have amicably decided on a parting of the ways
'I am genuinely sorry to see David go.
'He is a true professional and a really good guy and he leaves with all our best wishes.'
