Hartlepool midfielder Jon-Andre Fredriksen has had his contract at the club cancelled by mutual consent.
The 28-year-old Norwegian, who joined United from Norwegian second-tier side Sarpsborg in July 2009, was a first-team regular at the start of the 2009/10 season making 14 league and cup appearances.
However in 2010 his first-team opportunities have been limited and he made only two appearances this season in the Carling Cup win over Sheffield United and the away league success at Yeovil both as a second-half substitute.
On his time with the Pools, Fredriksen told the club`s official website: "I have been here for one and a half seasons now and sometimes you have to think about your career.
"When you haven`t played for a while and that is why you came over you have to sometimes move on.
"I had a great time here in Hartlepool, it has been a very good experience."
