Wolves today cancelled the contract of forgotten defender Steven Mouyokolo.
The 26-year-old, a £2.5m signing from Hull in June 2010, has been told he is free to find a new club after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent.
Mouyokolo, who still had another 18 months on his four-year deal, becomes the second player of the day to be paid up by Wolves after the surprise exit of Ronald Zubar, who has been announced as a new signing for French outfit AC Agaccio.
And he becomes the fifth this month to leave after Zubar, Richard Stearman, Frank Nouble and loanee Jermaine Pennant – with possibly more to follow over the next 24 hours before the window shuts at 11pm tomorrow night, with the club yet to make a signing.
Six-foot three stopper Mouyokolo has been out since last February with cruciate knee ligament damage sustained on a season-long loan at French side FC Sochaux.
Manager Dean Saunders said last week that the defender is still not fit, and underwent a course of injections in his knee.
Mouyokolo made just two Premier League starts for Wolves, plus another two off the bench, making just seven appearances in total while at Molineux.Subscribe to our Newsletter
