Middlesbrough have confirmed on their official website that Carlos de Pena has left the club.
Carlos de Pena leaves Middlesbrough by mutual consent after both parties agreed to terminate his contract prematurely.
The South American midfielder joined Middlesbrough in summer 2015 when they were in the Championship previously.
After arriving from Uruguayan outfit Nacional, Carlos de Pena managed just eleven appearances for Boro in two years with the club.
Of those eleven appearances, ten of those were in his first year with the club and he dropped out of favour in the 2016/17 season when Boro played in the Premier League.
Midfielder Carlos de Pena was mainly restricted to games in Middlesbrough’s under-23 side last season and he was subsequently farmed out on a half season loan deal.
de Pena spent the second half of last term on loan with Real Oviedo, who play in the Spanish Segunda Division.
During his time in northern Spain, the winger played seven games and scored once.
The Uruguayan midfielder had played a number of games back in his native country before his move to England in 2015 and could return to South America this summer.
Carlos de Pena is now available as a free agent and is free to move to another club after Boro agreed to terminate his contract.
The 25-year-old still had a year left to run on his deal but he has left to find another club and reignite his stalling career.
