Kyle Thomson departs Cappielow

American midfielder Kyle Thomson has today been allowed to leave the club after his contract was cancelled at his own request due to personal circumstances.

The 22-year-old former Loyola University Chicago athlete was signed following a successful trial stint in the summer and made one senior competitive appearance in an Irn-Bru Cup tie at Dumbarton.

Thomson’s deal was set to expire on 15 January 2019 but he will now depart with immediate effect. Everyone at the club thanks Kyle for his efforts in his time at Cappielow and wishes him the very best for the future.

He said his goodbyes at the ground today and explained: “I will be returning to Chicago in the next few days and came to a mutual agreement to cancel my contract early to allow me to do that.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Morton and will continue to follow the team’s fortunes in future. Everyone at the club was fantastic with me and I’d like to wish them all the best. Mon e Ton!”
