Morecambe have cancelled the contract of experienced striker Phil Jevons.

The 32-year-old joined the Shrimps in July 2009 and scored 19 goals in his initial season-long loan, earning him a two-year permanent deal.

However manager Jim Bentley has told Jevons he will not be in his plans for next season and allowed him to look for a new club.

"Phil has been a fantastic player for us and scored some vital goals," Bentley told the club website.external-link

"I told him that he would not be in the plans for next season and would not be involved much before the end of this year.

"This deal will hopefully give him the chance to get himself sorted with a new club as soon as he can.

"He really does leave with our best wishes and I hope he gets a deal as soon as possible."

Former Everton trainee Jevons has scored five goals for Morecambe this season, the last of them coming in a home defeat to Torquay in January.
