Danny Graham has left Sunderland by mutual consent, the League One club have announced.
The 35-year-old striker made 17 appearances after returning for a second spell at the club in September last year.
Graham told the club’s official website: “At this point in my career, it is no secret that I want to be playing regular football so I appreciate the understanding shown by the club in allowing me to pursue the opportunity to do this.
“I would like to thank everyone at SAFC, especially my team-mates and the supporters, for their backing throughout my two spells at the Stadium of Light. I wish you all the very best for the future.”
After a series of loan moves, Graham brought his first spell on Wearside to an end in 2016 when he signed an two-year deal with Blackburn.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old midfielder Elliot Embleton has signed a new deal until June 2022 and joined Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.
