Galinski & Richards move on to pastures new.

Derby County have cancelled the contract of central defender Stefan Galinski and attacker Kane Richards by mutual agreement.

The Academy graduates, who signed professional terms last summer, were due to be out of contract at the end of the season – but an agreement has been reached to cancel their deals early.

Galinski, the Rams’ former youth team captain, failed to make a first-team appearance for the Club and spent three months on loan at Blue Square North side Corby Town earlier in the campaign – while forward Richards spent time on loan at Matlock Town earlier this season and also failed to make a first-team outing.

Derby County would like to take the opportunity to wish Stefan and Kane well in their future careers.
