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.”

The two sides are tied on points with both having three wins from their first three league games so far this season.
The Glasgow giants may have fallen on hard times in recent years but a visit from one of the biggest teams in Scottish football, particularly with the chance to go top at stake makes this a huge occasion for the Doonhamers
Stranraer are in cup action tonight when they take on Scottish Premier League side Hibernian at Easter Road.
Victory would be a huge achievement for the Stair Park side, but manager Brian Reid says they have nothing to fear.
There's league cup action north of the Border as Berwick Rangers travel to Kilmarnock while Queen of the South, who are undefeated so far this season take on Morton.
The Doonhamers are joint top of the Scottish Championship with Rangers while newly promoted Morton are struggling, but James Fowler says he won't be taking the visitors lightly.
