Reading striker Shaun Goater has left the club after both parties agreed to cancel his player registration.
Goater joined Reading in August 2003
He had a year left on his deal but fell out of favour in 2004/5 and ended the season on loan at Coventry.
The 35-year-old was told he had no part in manager Steve Coppell's future plans for the team and a mutual agreement has been reached to allow Goater to leave.
Goater joined the Royals in the summer of 2003 and scored 12 League goals in his first season at Madejski Stadium.
