Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Hendrick Ekstein has been released from his contract by Azerbaijan side Sabah FK.
Ekstein joined Sabah at the start of the 2019/20 season after being released from his contract by Kaizer Chiefs.
Ekstein featured 16 times across all competitions for Sabah during his six-month stay and scored three goals while grabbing four assists in the process.
“Sabah FC have parted ways with Hendrick Ekstein. The contract was terminated with the South African midfielder by mutual agreement. Sabah FC wishes Ekstein success in his future career,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
It remains to be seen if local Absa Premier Soccer League side will make a move to sign Ekstein as many clubs will be looking to beef up their squads for the title run in or for dog eat dog relegation battle.
