Simon Haworth has parted company with Tranmere Rovers by mutual consent.Simon Haworth has parted company with Tranmere Rovers by mutual consent.
The striker requested that the club free him from his deal, and the League One outfit duly obliged.
Since joining Rovers from Wigan for £125,000 in 2002, Haworth has picked up 34 goals in 89 appearances.
However recently his career has stagnated after breaking his leg in January 2004, and the 27-year-old has made just three first team appearances since committing to a new deal in the summer.
Haworth expressed his disappointment at the way things had worked out, and revealed that he would be reconsidering his future in the summer.
"I wasn't going to play again this season and justifiably I wasn't going to be offered anything for next season so it was best for both parties," said Haworth.
"I'll come to a decision about my future in the summer when I know if I can play again but it's not looking too clever. I'm not looking for another club yet because I want to be able to do myself justice.
"It's been a tough time but the club and the fans have been great. I'm just disappointed that I couldn't finish things personally and collectively there because I had some great times there and I was desperate to succeed with them."
In other news, Brian Little must wait to see whether Calvin Zola can appear for the first team.
Tranmere are still waiting for a response from the Immigration Minister on whether Zola has the right to residency in the country.
