Striker Manny Duku has left Torquay United after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

Duku, 26, joined the club in the summer following his departure from League Two side Cheltenham Town, where he first played for United boss Gary Johnson.

The Dutchman made 16 appearances for the club in all competitions, but despite going close on a number of occasions, he was unable to open his account for The Gulls.

Manager Gary Johnson offered Duku his best wishes, as the forward departs Plainmoor.

“We’re sorry it didn’t quite work out for Manny here at Torquay, and we wish him and his new family, all the very best for the future.”
