Dundee have announced that striker Jason Cummings has left the club to join Central Coast Mariners in Australia.

The former Rangers and Hibs forward returned to Scotland in January 2021 on an 18-month contract following a spell at Shrewsbury Town.

The forward has moved to Australia after signing an 18-month deal at the Central Coast Mariners in the Isuzu UTE A-League.

Cummings scored 14 goals in 36 games during his time at Dens Park.

The striker was sent home from training and suspended by the club in December, after attending Open Goal live at the Hydro without receiving permission.

In a statement released on Sunday night, Dundee said: “Dundee Football Club can confirm this evening that Jason Cummings has left to join a club overseas.

“Jason signed for the club just under a year ago and scored 14 times in 36 appearances during his time at the Kilmac Stadium.

“He scored eight times as the club secured promotion back to the Premiership and found the net three times on league duty this campaign.

“We would like to thank Jason for his efforts while at Dens and wish him all the best for the future.”
