David Bishop has parted company with Edinburgh after his three-month contract expired.

The Welsh centre made his name playing for the Celtic Warriors and Ospreys before being hampered by a succession of knee injuries.

After fighting back to save his career, Bishop spent a season at Edgeley Park with Sale Sharks before enjoying short-term stints with Newport Gwent Dragons and Edinburgh.

Bishop made two appearances for Rob Moffat's men against Leinster and the Ospreys.

"David is a good professional and gave a good account of himself during his time at the club," said Moffat.

"He hasn’t had much luck with injuries in the last few years, but he’s a talented player who is willing to work hard. I’d like to wish him all the best for the future."
