Stephen Robinson has confirmed that Morecambe are in negotiations over Kyle Letheren’s departure from the club.

The goalkeeper joined the club in January last year and helped them to promotion via the play-offs, after which he signed a new 12-month deal.

However, the 34-year-old was in and out of the team in the first half of the season, sharing goalkeeping duties with Jokull Andresson.

Trevor Carson’s arrival last month saw him become first choice and he will be backed up by another new arrival in Adam Smith, who made his debut against Bolton Wanderers yesterday.
