Macclesfield Town have sacked striker Kevin Townson.
Townson joined the Silkmen from Rochdale during the summer
The League Two strugglers said in a statement that Townson has been given 14 days' notice of termination of his contract due to serious misconduct.
Townson was recently placed on the transfer list by boss Brian Horton as he looked to trim his playing budget.
The former Rochdale striker, 22, joined the Silkmen in the summer following a loan spell at the end of last season but has scored just twice for the club.
