Blackburn Rovers have terminated the contract of defender Myles Anderson by mutual consent.
The 22-year-old, who is the son of agent Jerome Anderson, did not play a first-team game in his 18 months at Ewood Park.
Anderson was a surprise signing in the summer of 2011 when then-manager Steve Kean likened him to Chris Smalling.
But after making a solitary substitute appearance for his former club Aberdeen, he failed to make the bench for Rovers.
And when he went on loan to Aldershot this season, Anderson could not break into a team who dropped into the League Two relegation places.
He made five league appearances for the Shots, all as a substitute, with the only starts of his career coming in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
In 2011, Kean, who claimed Spanish clubs were also interested in Anderson, defending his signing by saying: "We feel that Myles Anderson is a player with great potential as a late developer.
"He could become something of a Chris Smalling who came through late in football and Myles has done the same because of his schooling."
