A-League strugglers Western Sydney Wanderers and midfielder Vitor Saba have agreed to part ways effective immediately.
The Brazilian is one of a number of players at Wanderers earmarked for the exit.
An undoubted talent, with an impressive first touch, Saba's training, fitness and on-field application are said to have put him off-side with the club.
The 24-year-old joined Wanderers in June last year on a two-year contract and made 15 appearances in the A-League, AFC Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup.
CEO John Tsatsimas wished the young playmaker well on his football journey.
“The club and player have mutually agreed to part ways to allow the player to pursue alternative playing opportunities," Tsatsimas said
“In his short period of time with us we have won the AFC Champions League of which he was a part of, and we wish him every success in the next stage of his football journey."
The Asian champions are currently languishing at the foot of the A-League table, with three games in hand, and have yet to win a match this season.
