Charlton Athletic have cancelled the contracts of striker Ricardo Vaz Te and midfielder Franck Moussa by mutual consent, the club has confirmed on their official website.
The former Premier League forward only joined the Addicks in November following a brief spell in Turkey, but after playing just 12 times for Charlton in all competitions, both the player and the club have now agreed that it is time for him to move on.
The 29-year-old previously played for clubs including Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United, scoring the winner in the Championship play-off final for the latter and featuring in the Premier League at both clubs.
Meanwhile, Moussa joined Charlton in July 2014 on a free transfer for Coventry City, but persistent injury problems limited him to just 23 appearances in all competitions, of which only nine were starts.
The Belgian midfielder’s contract at The Valley was due to expire in the summer, and the former Southend United and Leicester City man has now also been allowed to find a new club.
Charlton fans – is the release of Vaz Te and Moussa the right decision, or do you think both players could still have had a part to play at the club? Let us know your opinions below!
