Striker Cillian Sheridan leaves Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia

Former St Johnstone striker Cillian Sheridan

Former St Johnstone striker Cillian Sheridan has left Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia by mutual consent.

The Irishman began his senior career at Celtic, with loan spells at Motherwell, Plymouth and Saints.

In 2010, Sheridan signed permanently for CSKA, reportedly becoming the club's top earner but within a year had returned to Perth, again on loan.

However, financial problems at the Bulgarian runners-up led to Sheridan agreeing to walk away from the club.

The 23-year-old has made three appearances for the Republic of Ireland, winning his first cap against Paraguay in 2010.
