Contract terminated by mutual consent
Kallum Higginbotham has today left Huddersfield Town after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
The 24 year-old’s contract was due to run until the conclusion of the 2013/14 Championship season.
Kallum joined the Terriers on the final day of the January 2012 transfer window from Scottish side Falkirk, penning a two and a half year contract.
He made an impressive debut during a 1-1 home draw with Milton Keynes Dons in League 1 in early February, but lost his place in the side and played five games on loan at Championship Barnsley during a two month loan spell. He returned to play his part as the Terriers were promoted via the League 1 Play-Offs, starting the Wembley final against Sheffield United, but didn’t play a single game for Town last season – instead playing 21 games across two separate loan spells for Carlisle United and Motherwell.
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins commented:
“Kallum has come back to the Club and worked very hard in pre-season; I can’t fault his work ethic and team spirit.
“However, he understandably wants to play regular first team football at this stage of his career and that is not something we can offer him at Huddersfield.
“As a result, this course of action is in the best interests of both parties. He is now free agent to progress he career.
“We’d like to thank Kallum for his contribution and wish him the best of luck in the future.”
