Middlesbrough have parted company with striker Kei Kamara, the club announced on their website.
Kamara is now looking for a new club after not featuring at all this season and has left Boro by mutual consent.
The Sierra Leone striker joined Middlesbrough for £900,000 from Sporting Kansas on the summer deadline day last season.
He made 24 appearances for the club and scored four goals during his time at the Riverside Stadium.
Kamara caused controversy with Boro fans in July when he contracted malaria and criticised the club for ‘doing nothing’ on his twitter account, which FLW reported.
In a short statement, the club have said, “The Club would like to thank Kei for his efforts over the last 12 months and wish him every success in his future career.”
