The left-back has now cut his ties with Carlisle, having been looking for a club in his homeland for several weeks.

Bugno is not understood to have yet found a new club but is now free to move on after this morning's decision.

The 22-year-old returned to Italy in early December after the club said he had struggled to settle after his summer move.

Bugno started the season in the United side after impressing manager Greg Abbott in several trial appearances.

But he quickly lost his place to Chris Chantler, and left after making just four appearances for Abbott's side.

United managing director John Nixon said: "We have reached a mutual agreement and Alessio has subsequently had his contract with us cancelled.

"As far as we understand things he is still having trials, but we needed him to make a decision before the transfer window closed [at 11pm today].

"He hasn't settled over here so the best thing for all concerned was to allow him to leave and try to secure himself a deal over in Italy."
