Last updated: 15th February 2010
David Foley is set to join Puerto Rico Islanders after Hartlepool agreed to cancel the remainder of his contract.
The Islanders, who play in the second tier of football in America, are managed by Northern Ireland legend Colin Clarke.
Pools have now agreed to cancel the remainder of the 22-year-old’s contract and he has thanked the club for granted his request.
«We both agreed that the move would be a good one for me if it happened and Chris said he would sort it out for me at this end and here we are now – it’s all done and dusted this end,» Foley told the club’s official website.
«Pre-season starts on March 15 and the season starts in April. They play in the US League, which is one below the MLS. They are one of the favourites for promotion this year.
«I’d like to thank Chris Turner and the staff at the club for helping me make this move happen. I will always have a thing for Hartlepool now – this is all I have known since I left school.
«I am leaving the club but not on bad terms by any means, I will look out for the results.»
