The winger was invited back into the Blues' Under-23s fold after he broke a bone in his back in training last spring and had been used by David Unsworth during this season's Premier League 2 and cup campaigns.
The 23-year-old has now officially left the club again after a decade at Finch Farm.
"Harry has been released," Unsworth told the Liverpool Echo yesterday.
"His deal was only until January and we were trying to help him out because we had a small squad this year.
"He got injured on our watch so we felt we had an obligation and we felt we had to do the right thing by offering him a six-month contract which we duly did and obviously got him fit over pre-season and got him a few games and profile in the shop window.
"And now that's a matter for Harry to carve himself a career hopefully at the highest level possible for him."
Update Harry Charsley subsequently joined League Two side Mansfield Town later in January 2020.

Best of luck to him â€“ there is nothing to say he won't make it back up to the top as did Lundstram, Akpan and Forshaw.

So if you get injured at work or become ill, they should just sack you. Sorry boss I need to have my hernia fixed. It will be a couple of days in hospital and then I can't life anything for 6 weeks. That's fine Phil, we will pay you until you come out of hospital and then we will sack you because you are not able to work. Hope the operation goes well. Bye and don't forget to take your things with you.
I am so happy that we are a family in this club from the very top to the very bottom. I applaud the stance that David Unsworth has taken.

That analogy doesn't stack up at all.
By the sounds of it, Charsley was set to be released anyway but we gave him an additional six month deal to support him while he came back from injury.
A more likely scenario:
â€˜Sorry boss I need to have my hernia fixed. It will be a couple of days in hospital and then I can't lift anything for 6 weeks.'
â€˜Well your contract ends tomorrow, but have another six months on the house. We have fans working 60 hour weeks earning £400 but I see no problem in paying you double that despite having absolutely no use for you. While you're here, Harry, can I offer you a position on the board. We have no idea what we're doing and could definitely use you as some kind of heartwarming sob story to pacify any fans demanding competence.'

On a similar theme, we have a promising crop of youngsters and need to be cautious of releasing any too quickly.
