Perth Glory have parted company with former Republic of Ireland international Liam Miller after he opted not to re-sign with the club.

Glory coach Alistair Edwards said he had offered the 32-year-old a new deal for next season, but Miller opted to pursue other opportunities.

"Unfortunately, it's part and parcel of football," Edwards said.

"Players come and go. Liam has played an important role over the last two years but has decided to move on.

"We'd like to thank him for his commitment and professionalism at Perth Glory and we wish him well in his future endeavours."

Miller joined the Glory in June 2011 after stints with Celtic, Manchester United, Sunderland and Hibernian, and he made 50 appearances for the A-League club, scoring two goals.

The Glory revealed they are negotiating with Ryo Nagai's Japanese club Cerezo Osaka to extend the 21-year-old's loan term, while Steven McGarry and Argentine midfielder Matias Cordoba are also in talks over deals for next season.
