Manchester United's million pound man John Cofie has left Derry City

By Gareth Hanna

Former Manchester United big-money signing John Cofie has left Derry City by mutual consent.

The ex England U17 international was signed by the Candystripes back in November in a bid to resurrect his career.

However, after making just one start, four substitute appearances and failing to score, the 25 year-old's time at the club has come to an end. His only start for Derry arrived in a 2-2 draw with Dundalk just over a month ago.

Cofie was signed by Manchester United for £1m from Burnley back in 2007, becoming the youngest-ever million pound player, aged just 14.

He went on to feature for England U17s and played in the 2010 Milk Cup for United, scoring a hat-trick to help his side beat Tyrone.

However, after loan spells at Royal Antwerp, Sheffield United and Notts County, Cofie joined Barnsley in 2013.

That shift failed to breathe new life into his career, as did subsequent moves to Norwegian side Molde, Crawley Town and Wrexham.

His first league goals since his loan spells from United arrived when he joined National League North side AFC Telford United in January 2016, netting four times in 17 league appearances.

Since then, another move, this one to Southport featured two more loans, to Bradford Park Avenue and Chorley. He went on to join English Northern Premier League side Stalybridge Celtic last September, before making the move across the Irish Sea to sign for Derry City.
