CONTRACT: Striker released by mutual consent

23 December 2015

Forward leaves the club by mutual consent

Carlisle United have today parted company with striker Kevin Osei by mutual consent.

Osei, 24, teamed up with the Cumbrians during pre-season and was awarded a six-month contract following a successful trial period. He made a total of nine appearances for the club and scored a fantastic goal in the 3-1 Capital One Cup home victory over Chesterfield in August. 

Manager Keith Curle said: “Kevin is a great lad and I’m mindful that he isn’t getting the game time he wants and needs at this stage of his career.

“He started his time with us really well but he was hampered by an ankle injury which affected him and slowed the impetus and momentum he had built up as he got used to the way we wanted to play the game.

“He has plenty to offer and it goes without saying that I wish him well as he moves on.”

A product of the Marseille youth system, Osei signed professional forms with the French giants in 2009 and made his only appearance for the club against AEL Limassol in the UEFA Europa League. 

He had a loan spell with Aviron Bayonnais and was offered a deal by Waasland-Beveren in Belgium prior to heading across the channel for his trial spell with United.

He leaves Brunton Park with the best wishes of everyone at the club.
