Morecambe have confirmed the departure by mutual consent of goalkeeper Kyle Letheren from the Mazuma Stadium.

The 34-year-old leaves the Shrimps a year after joining them, in which time he made 38 appearances and helped the club gain promotion into League One.

He had signed a one-year deal last summer but shared goalkeeping duties with Reading loanee Jokull Andresson until the end of 2021.

Morecambe boss: Draw disappointment illustrates the players' progress

Morecambe boss Stephen Robinson had confirmed after last Saturday’s draw against Bolton Wanderers that the two parties had been in talks over an early departure.

Letheren’s departure was subsequently confirmed this afternoon with the manager adding: “Myself and Kyle have spoken at length and decided it was the right time for him to move on.

“He understandably wants to play games and further his career. This gives him the best chance of doing that.
