On 7 January 2009, Casement signed on loan for League Two side Wycombe Wanderers for a month.[2] This loan deal was subsequently extended, firstly to two months, then to three months. Casement returned to Ipswich before being released on 8 May.

On 22 June, it was announced that he had signed a three-year deal with Scottish First Division side Dundee.[3]

On 31 January, Casement signed on loan for Linfield FC until the end of the current season. On 4 May 2010, he was informed along with 3 other players that he was no longer wanted by Dundee and was free to look for another club.[4] On 8 May 2012, It was confirmed Casement had signed a three-year contract with Portadown FC.
