Carlisle United midfielder Danny Kearns has left the club, after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

The 24-year-old signed on a two-year deal in July 2014, but went on to make just 12 appearances.

Danny is a great lad but he’s probably one of the players who hasn’t had as much opportunity to showcase himself as he would have wanted.

He was really unlucky with injuries when I first got here but his attitude throughout has been excellent. We’ve reached a compromise agreement which means he can now move on and hopefully further his career.

He wants to be playing football and his opportunities were limited here. I think this suits all parties and it goes without saying we wish him well as he moves on from Carlisle United.”

– Keith Curle, Carlisle United Manager
