Evergreen former Carlisle United favourite Derek Asamoah is set to move clubs at 42.

The striker has announced he has left non-league club Brightlingsea Regent as he is considering offers from other clubs.

Asamoah joined Brightlingsea last October after a spell with New Salamis.

He is now set to add another club to his long CV as he takes his career further into extra-time.

The man who played for United from 2014 to 2017 said he and Brightlingsea had parted on mutual terms.

"I've been made aware of some offers from other clubs, and the club and I have come to an amicable agreement so that I can consider these offers," Asamoah said.

"I will be doing so in the next few days, but I would like to thank everyone at the club and wish them well. It's been a pleasure."

Asamoah's latest move to the Essex club in the Isthmian League North Division followed a prolific spell at New Salamis, who he helped to promotion.

Ghana-born Asamoah joined Carlisle under Keith Curle in 2014 and in his second campaign with the club wrote his name into Blues legend by scoring in front of the Kop in September 2015's 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the Carabao Cup.

He left in the summer of 2016 before returning for a further spell, and in total Asamoah scored 14 goals in 90 appearances.

His other clubs in the UK and overseas include Northampton Town, Mansfield Town, Lincoln City, Chester, Shrewsbury Town, Nice, Hamilton Academical, Lokomotiv Sofia, Pohang Steelers, Daegu, Guiseley, Haringey Borough and Cheshunt.

In an interview with the News & Star last year, Asamoah, who turns 43 in May, said he intended to continue playing as long as he remained fit enough and was enjoying it.

“Honestly, I’m loving it," he said of his recent non-league spell. "It's the it's the best thing I did. It’s giving me a whole new lease of energy, a new lease of life.

"When you get to a certain age, it’s easy to think, ‘I’m a bit old, I’d better stop’. But my body is not ready to stop.”

Asamoah's son Maleace is in League One with Fleetwood Town, while he has younger sons making their way in the grassroots game too.
