The 24-year-old’s contract at Bloomfield Road has been cancelled by mutual consent, freeing him up to join another club.

It comes after a similar situation with Teddy Howe, which allowed the defender to sign for National League side Barnet.Sarkic departs the Fylde coast without making a single appearance under Neil Critchley in the last 12 months.

In fact, his last cameo for the Seasiders came exactly a year ago to the day, coming on as an 88th-minute substitute during the 5-0 thrashing of Wigan Athletic on January 26, 2021.

The forward, a free transfer from Burton Albion in the summer of 2020, made just 10 appearances for the club, failing to register a goal.

He spent a brief spell on loan with Mansfield Town last season, making four appearances before his stay was cut short as a result of injury.

It’s anticipated that Joe Nuttall will be the next player to head through the exit door, with a move to League Two side Scunthorpe United close to being finalised.It was expected the striker’s switch would be completed today, but we’re still awaiting official confirmation.
