ON-LOAN Pars midfielder John Herron has reached an agreement with parent club Blackpool to terminate his contract.

The 23-year-old revealed to Press Sport that he will be free to leave the Lancashire outfit this summer despite having another year on his deal.

Herron moved to the League Two club in 2015 after being released by Celtic on a two-year contract, with the option of a further year.

Despite a promising start to life in England, Herron fell out of favour with the Seasiders when Gary Bowyer was appointed in place of the sacked Neil McDonald last summer following their relegation from League One.

He featured just twice for Blackpool this season - both in the League Cup - before joining the Pars on loan on the final day of the summer transfer deadline.

Herron expressed his desire not to return to Bloomfield Road in November and, after agreeing to extend his initial loan stint until January to the end of the season, is set to leave them this summer.

He said: "I have another two years on my contract at Blackpool but it was agreed this morning that I could go for free. I didn't want any money or anything like that so there's an arrangement to pay up my contract.

"I've not one bad word to say about the club. I was happy I done it (moved to Blackpool), but at the same time I was happy to be back home."

We'll have a more in-depth interview with Herron in this Thursday's Press Sport.
