Hungarian goalkeeper David Grof has left SPL club Hibernian by mutual consent.
Grof has struggled for first-team football at Easter Road, making just one competitive appearance, and has now chosen to depart the side in a bid to further his career.
The 19-year-old underwent a trial at West Bromwich Albion in January, and it is reported he is keen to seek a move to the Premier League.
"I thought long and hard about leaving the club but in the end I had to so I can play regular football," Grof told the Daily Record.
"I've loved every minute here since I arrived in Scotland two-and-a-half years ago.
"Hibs have been absolutely brilliant for me and I can't thank everyone at the club enough for everything they have done - especially the goalkeeping coach Gordon Marshall. He was fantastic and helped me a lot in my development.
"And the Under 19s coach Alistair Stevenson was superb to me and a great man to work for.
"But I knew I had to leave to play first-team football. That's no disrespect to Hibs but I wasn't getting a look in at that level and that's where I need to be playing.
"I was given a chance in the cup defeat to Morton but after we were knocked out I wasn't picked any more.
"That's not a dig at the manager Mixu Paatelainen. He is a great coach and the right man for Hibs.
"He gave me my opportunity and I will always remember that. But I have to quit the club to try to get playing top football regularly.
"But Hibs have been the best club for me. I made a lot of good friends but I have to leave for my career.
"I'm very grateful the chairman has allowed me to leave to pursue my dream."
