South African Premier Soccer League side AmaZulu have announced terminating the contract of Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Awal-Issah.

Awal-Issah went AWOL in November and left the club with no option but to axe the player.

The 27-year-old returned to the club in July after an initial 18-month spell five years ago.

He started just two games and coming on as a substitute twice out of 14 matches.

AmaZulu have since signed Nhlanhla Shabalala and Ruzaigh Gamildien to strengthen the midfield.

“Firstly, we’ve released two players in [Mohammed] Awal and [Letladi] Madubanya so we had to replace them and Shabba comes in with a lot of experience and he’s a defensive and holding midfielder,” AmaZulu head coach Rosslee told Usuthu’s official website.
