Defender’s contract mutually terminated
Jamie McCombe has become the latest player to leave Huddersfield Town today after coming to a mutual agreement to cancel his contract.
The former Bristol City and Lincoln City centre back only made five appearances under Simon Grayson’s management last season – the last of which came on 10 March – and has come to an agreement to cancel the final year of his contract at the Club so he can pursue regular first team football.
The 29 year-old was signed by former manager Lee Clark from Bristol City for an undisclosed fee in January 2010 and has gone on to make 68 appearances for the Club in all competitions, scoring nine goals.
His departure follows hot on the heels of fellow defender Antony Kay heading to MK Dons, but Town are still well stocked in the centre back department – with Peter Clarke, Joel Lynch, Anthony Gerrard and Murray Wallace set to compete for starting positions this term.
Huddersfield Town Manager Simon Grayson explained Jamie’s departure to htafc.com:
“Much like Antony Kay, Jamie is a senior player and he needs first team football at his age.
“It is only fair to allow players to go in search of first team football when you can’t offer it to them and his departure also helps our wage bill.”
Huddersfield Town would like to thank Jamie for his efforts during his time at the Club and wish him all the best for the future.
