Neale McDermott has had his contract at Carlisle United terminated by mutual consent.
The midfielder joined the Cumbrians from Fulham in the summer of 2006 but has failed to hold down a regular first-team spot at Brunton Park.
The former Newcastle United trainee made 18 appearances during his two years at the club, scoring three goals.
He had made just one substitute appearance for the club this season, in a Carling Cup defeat to Coventry back in August.
McDermott, who had enjoyed loan spells at Swindon and Darlington earlier in his career, will now begin his search for a new club ahead of the 2008/09 campaign.
