Colorado Rapids announced on Friday that the club has parted ways with forward Caleb Folan by mutual consent.

The former Hull City striker joined the Rapids last year.

"We would like to thank Caleb for his service to the Rapids, and wish him the best moving forward," said Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo. "This will allow us the ability to bring in other players ahead of the season, in positions where we have greater need."

Folan, 29, joined the Rapids ahead of the 2011 season and played 26 games (16 starts), scoring six goals.
