In big news coming out of Ikon Park, Blues big man Levi Casboult will leave the club at the end of the year, with Carlton choosing not to give him a new deal.

The 31-year-old, who was granted life membership at the club after featuring on 153-occasions, will depart Princes Park after spending the best part of a decade in a navy blue guernsey.

Speaking to the club's website, Casboult fondly reminisced on his time as a Blue bagger.

β€œThe opportunity to call Carlton home and live out my boyhood dream over the past 12 years has been incredible,” the 31-year-old exclaimed.

β€œTo be departing the Club with Life Membership and after reaching the 150-game milestone earlier this year, is something I am incredibly proud of and am honoured to have been able to achieve."

The often maligned forward also paid praise to those that had helped him across his career thus far.

β€œSo many people at this football club have shown faith in me over the course of my career and I am extremely grateful for the support I have received, both internally from a staffing and player point of view, and externally from my family, friends and all Carlton members and supporters," Casboult continued.

The big man managed 154-goals over his career with the club and was known for his incredible contested marking ability, with his vice-like grip on the footy being one of the strongest in the league.

As of current, Casboult hasn't announced whether he will look for a new club or end his career as a one-club player, with the forward growing up as a Blues fan.
