WILLO FLOOD has this afternoon left Athletic - little over a week after joining the club.

The former Dundee United midfielder, 33, has had his contract mutually terminated in order to move to Bali United.

The Irishman completed a surprise switch to East End last Monday after ending his fourth spell at Tannadice, but it has been revealed he had a clause in his contract "for a very short window" to allow him to realise his ambition of playing abroad if the opportunity arose.

The club stated: "Dunfermline Athletic regretfully wishes to announce that it has today agreed to allow Willo Flood to terminate his contract with our club, only a week after he agreed to join us.

"Before joining our club, Willo had highlighted that it had always been his ambition to continue his playing career abroad, and had been seeking such a move over the last couple of seasons. However, no opportunity had arisen, until last weekend. He has now received an attractive offer from Bali United."
