Carlisle striker Danny Graham has turned down the offer of a new two-year contract at Brunton Park.
The 23-year-old hinted via his agent on Thursday afternoon that he would be looking for a new club before rejecting the deal.
And manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website: "Danny has told us that he feels it is time for a new challenge and that he wants to ply his trade elsewhere.
"We made what we felt was an excellent offer to try to keep him at the club but the player has decided that it is time for him to move on. We have to accept that and move on ourselves.
"We wish Danny all the best as he has been fantastic for us and we will now continue the search to bring in the kind of player who will improve the squad and take us to where we want to be."
