Alessandro Cibocchi has left Swindon

Swindon defender Alessandro Cibocchi has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent.

The Italian is now a free agent and will return home due to family reasons.

"I would like to thank all the Swindon fans and everyone at the club," he told the club's official website.

"The fans used to sing 'dance with Cibocchi' but I cannot do that anymore! I have enjoyed my time with Swindon and wish them success this season.

"Also thank you to my team-mates for the past year I have had with the club because they have all made me feel very welcome and helped me."

Cibocchi arrived at the County Ground last summer on a two-year deal and made a total of 18 league appearances, helping Paolo Di Canio's team win promotion as League Two champions.
