Midfielder Gary Dicker has left Carlisle United by mutual consent.

The 29-year-old joined the Blues on a two-year deal in the summer of 2014, and scored a single goal in 50 appearances.

He has agreed terms to join Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock, having been placed on United's transfer list.

Manager Keith Curle wished him well:

We thank Gary for his efforts and commitment and it goes without saying that we wish him well.

The understanding has always been that if a player on the transfer list can secure a future beyond the end of this season, to further his career, then that's what we will allow him to do.

Gary now sees his long term future to be up in Scotland, but we have to say that he had bought in to everything we were trying to do. That was very good to see and we always got strong, committed performances from him whenever he took to the pitch.

As I say, we wish Gary well as he moves on to take this next step in his career."

– Keith Curle, Carlisle United Manager
