Peterborough United striker Joe Gormley has quit professional football.
The Northern Irishman is currently on loan at SPL side St Johnstone but has struggled to make an impact after joining them in the summer transfer window.
He has now grown disillusioned with his lack of first team action and has told Posh he wants to walk away from the game.
Gormley moved to Peterborough from semi-professional side Cliftonville for £50,000 in 2015, but almost immediately suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.
His luck hasn't changed north of the border and he's now back training with his former club in his homeland.
The important thing here is Joe’s wellbeing and it is clear he does not wish to continue playing full time football.
Having already turned out for Peterborough United and ourselves that is not an option this season in any case.
It’s always been our aim to do what’s best for the player and that’s what we are attempting to do.
Peterborough United goalkeeper Ben Alnwick has signed a new three-year contract with the club.
The 29-year-old joined Posh in 2014 and has gone on to make 80 appearances for the club.
Alnwick has previously played for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Sunderland and Norwich City.
I am delighted. He is one of the best keepers in the league in my opinion and I am pleased he has signed for the next three years.
He has come back in great shape, he is trim, looking ready to go and I am really happy that we have been able to get this done.

Football fans have bid a fond farewell to former Peterborough United and Cambridge United Manager Chris Turner.
Fans joined friends and family at the funeral for the 64-year-old which took place at Peterborough Cathedral this morning.
He died last month after being diagnosed with dementia eight years ago.
"There's only one word for Chris and that's immense.
He is the epitome of the word legend. He's done everything at the Football Club, right through from owning it, running it, managing it, playing for it.
He's never to be forgotten. He was a wonderful man."

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has left the club after Saturday's defeat to MK Dons.
Posh have won just one of their last five matches in the league.
In a statement on the club website chairman Darragh MacAnthony said he was "very disappointed" with recent results.
I’m personally very disappointed in our current league position, the performances from our playing squad and the fact that we have dropped way below our own standards that we set out at as a football club. There is plenty of young and experienced talent in this squad and with 14 games left in the season, I have personal expectations that our players will all lift their performance levels to match the incredible passionate performance and display by nearly 2000 Posh fans today when we were 3-0 down at Stadium MK.
Dave Robertson will be in charge until a new manager is appointed.
Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson is inviting supporters to a special forum at the ABAX Stadium tonight.
The manager says he understands fans are frustrated with their poor form and wanted the chance to answer their questions directly in an honest and open way.
"We are going through a really difficult time at the minute, but it is vital that everyone sticks together during this period.
I understand that the supporters are frustrated and I felt it was a good time to have a forum where supporters can put their point of view directly to me and for me to answer those questions in an honest and open way."
