Real Salt Lake has released Wales international defender Adam Henley, the club announced on Tuesday.

"We want to thank Adam for his time with the club and wish him the best in his next opportunity," RSL general manager Craig Waibel said in a statement.

"This move is mutually beneficial as it allows Adam the opportunity to openly seek out a club where he might find more playing time to continue his development and also allows us the roster flexibility to potentially make additions to the squad in the summer."

Henley, 24, had made just five appearances for the club, totaling 260 minutes, since joining as a free agent in January of 2018.

The twice-capped Wales man also played eight times on loan with the USL's Real Monarchs.

Henley began his career in the Blackburn academy, where stayed from July 2012 to July 2017.
