Gunby has now become a free agent, with the club unclear as to what his plans are.
Lincoln born, Gunby joined Bury in 2000 and quickly progressed to become an integral figure in Andy Feeley's successful youth set-up.
At the close of the 2001/02 campaign the tenacious midfielder broke into Andy Preece's first team, making his debut in the final league game of the season.
However, his career has stalled practically ever since, with Gunby making just one further full appearance and five from the bench.
Another departure from Gigg Lane is on-loan midfielder Glenn Whelan.
Manager Graham Barrow has confirmed that the Manchester City midfield man is not now able to extend his loan spell.
Whelan has spent the past three months on loan at Bury, but The Shakers do not have the resources to make the deal permanent and Whelan is also reportedly keen on a return to impress Kevin Keegan.
''Any long term loan had to be sorted before the end of the new year and Glenn wanted to keep his options open,'' Barrow told the club's official website.
''It is a decision he may regret now, but we can't do anything more.''
