Former England goalkeeper Richard Wright has left Preston North End just weeks after signing a one-year contract with the League One club.
Wright agreed a deal with Preston at the end of May after being released by Ipswich Town and he had only been training with Graham Westley's side for a few days.
However, the 34-year-old has not been able to settle in the area without his family and has left Deepdale with immediate effect.
"It might seem somewhat dramatic, but I have only been away from my home in East Anglia for a few days and I know already that I simply cannot live that far away from me family," Wright told the club's official website.
"I have children settled in school, so moving isn't an option. I think it is only fair to be honest now rather than down the line when the club may not be able to solve the problem that I am creating."
Preston boss Westley said: "It takes a brave man to be honest in a difficult situation like this. Richard thought that he could handle the separations from his family, but he has found it too much.
"He is a good man and I wish him well on behalf of all at PNE."
